Forgiveness

This is about a true story happened at Boston. A little girl publicly forgave the convict who put her in a wheelchair for life.

When the accident happened three years ago, her mother chose forgiveness instead of anger to deal with the tragic event. She taught her daughter to forgive and to move on with life. A graceful act and a precious lesson it is for her children and everyone else.

We can't expect there are no obstacles in our children's life. There will be problems. There will be mistakes. There will be failures. And there will be unfairness. I believe that the most critical task for parents is to show kids how to deal with the difficulties in life. We need to accept that bad things do happen and believe that it will always be better tomorrow.
