Inspired News: The Miracle of Resilience, The Power of Forgiveness

I once heard it said that the power of forgiveness is that it frees us.  When we forgive, we stand courageously to say, “You may have hurt me in my past, but you will no longer be a part of my future.”

Amanda Berry, Gina Dejesus, and Michelle Knight are powerful examples of this truth.  If you haven’t had the chance to see their video tapped statements to the public, please take the time to watch it now.

Michelle Knight’s statement was particularly powerful for me.  It left me wanting to be a better, stronger, more compassionate person.  I was inspired.  I hope you feel the same.
