Thi story reminds me of how powerful true forgiveness can be. Obviously the woman will never get her son back in this life,and she could see how truly
sorry her sons murderer was,so it seems fitting that she could forgive him for something he could not go back and change ,as much as he might want
I think her son would want her to forgive him as well, if he was truly sorry.
That being said,I think it is very difficult to forgive those who really are not sorry, and I'm not sure they should be.
It bothered me when I saw an interviewer ask the Doctor ,who's two daughters ,and wife had been tortured than killed through a house fire that he
managed to escape. Of course he said he couldn't forgive..(it was also less than a few months prior)..but it seemed like the person doing the
interview expected that if he was a good person,he should forgive.
I think I would have wanted to punch the interviewer,then ask.."are you
ready to forgive me"
