Forgiveness is a decision. We decide to cut off the bitter root and plant a seed of love. We cannot blame ourselves if it does not grow; sometimes the other party has poisoned the soil too much. But we must keep the bitter roots cut and plant more and more seeds of love. Forgiveness begins when we make that choice; long before we see the results.
The voice of the masses does not dictate what is true and right. Truth dictates truth, and there is only one source of morality. Find Truth, pursue righteousness, and hold on tight. Be the one to stand for what is good and honest and pure. You just might change the world.
