Asher Solomon Posted about 4 years ago Aicha el-Wafi + Phyllis Rodriguez: The mothers who found forgiveness, friendship @Jason your 'rigorous logic' sounds like 'if I can make a rational argument why I'm right and they're wrong then the only time that I can find forgiveness is when they agree that I'm right and they're wrong' You want some logic? Innocent children that are born everyday into families and socieities that convince them that they have an enemy. When you don't forgive, you only perpetuate this. This is not pathological altruism. This is about a practical means for trying to understand the terrible circumstances can lead up to horrific things being done by pretty much anyone - and then moving forward together. Because the only alternative is that you keep 'them' at arms distance and you perpetuate the us v them mentality in this world. What sort of world do you want to create?
