STOP AND THINK – I think the hardest thing in life is to forgive. (Louis Zamperini, late American Olympian and World War II POW)
After suffering pain and privation as a prisoner of war, Zamperini, could say, “Hate is self-destructive. If you hate someone, you’re not hurting the person you hate, you’re hurting yourself.” That’s a difficult but important lesson to learn. Our anger and hatred does little to the one who has hurt us, but it greatly harms us unless we learn this important lesson.
