“Today I have forgiven Beatriz for killing my daughter Charlotte” Mary told the year 9 at Oaklands this morning. “When you have unforgiveness, bitterness and anger it eats you up – it can make you physically sick in your body. The perpetrator is living their life, but you’re the one whose got that anger, the bitterness, the resentment, so you’re the prisoner as well as the perpetrator. If you can forgive and let go of grudges, it makes you the bigger person.” Thank you to the students of Oakland's for being such an attentive audience. We would love to hear your thoughts on the presentation!
