Ryan Lobo: Photographing the hidden story
St Paul started out as a mass murderer. I certainly have no wisdom but several possibilities seem evident. I suspect he has done more good & effected more healing with his current efforts than any tribunal & execution could approach. Still, society, as a whole, can be a bloodthirsty beast (Mr Lobo's stories illustrate the minority sadly); 'justice must be seved'. My personal experience as a physician in a poor area seems to mirror Mr Lobo's: most people disappoint me, but some unexpectedly surprise me. I'm embarrassed & ashamed that I'm not doing better.

Is there a framework for forgiving yourself?
Actually turning into a cool complex question with the possibilities expanding out to past my abilities. Forgiving yourself should be similar to asking forgiveness from others. It involves admitting openly that 'a wrong' occurred. (was it really wrong? could it have been handled differently? etc is another issue). Then you ask for forgiveness. It doesn't matter if you get it. Then you make an attempt at restitution. Make some attempt to make it right. It frequently isn't possible to put things back but make the attempt...any attempt. It's a 'framework' that works for me.
