I don't know if I'll ever be able to forgive. I don't know, in my understanding, it seems too easy. We inside ourselves may see ourselves in the five policemen, the kid who spreads lies so easily, or even the politician who writes death dealing laws. That's all very well and good, but in reality, our oppressors will see our forgiveness, and tell themselves that what they are doing is right- the self delusion is simply that strong.

We'll gain clarity- but how would that affect people who refuse to hear our voices saying "I forgive you"? I simply am not sure if I can trust people who hate us so much to really see our forgiveness at all.
