This story inspired me. In case you aren't inclined to click on the link to read it, or better yet, listen to it, I'll summarize. It's about a woman who forgave the man who killed her son (the perpetrator was a teenager involved in gangs, drugs, etc. at the time) and who has now sort of adopted him as her own son. It amazes me and inspires me to know that people can forgive something so terrible so completely. I sometimes struggle to forgive people for rather insiginificant offenses, but I know that there is healing power that can help me (and anyone) to forgive. That healing power comes from Jesus Christ. I am thankful for His sacrifice that makes forgiveness possible, and for inspiring stories like this one that remind me that I can forgive.
