Some Freepers agree this is healthy, others though...
ZULU doesn't believe in genuine forgiveness:
Stockholm Syndrome.GeronL knows what these kids are thinking:
Of course you haven’t heard from them. They do NOT care about you at all. You are NOTHING to them.ladyjane has a friend she thinks should never forgive:
I have a friend who was knocked over in an airport staircase by some idiots who loaded a cart up with luggage and tried to take in down a stairway. She was hit by the suitcases as they fell out of the cart. The idiots never even stopped to check if she was okay. I’ll have to ask her if she is ready to forgive them - after multiple surgeries.MadMax, the Grinning Reaper thinks holding onto a bit of anger is healthy:
Some anger keeps you sharp and ready for any trouble that comes your way. WHile the victim couldn’t have anticipated the assault from above, a little paranoia and anger can save your life because it makes you aware of your environment.That's an arguable point, but then he follows up:
I’m angry that we have allowed punks and gangs to wander at will for so long. Liberals made all kinds of excuses for their existence and behavior, but none of them suffered at their hands because they lived in fancy neighborhoods and never walked anywhere....
I can’t reserve my anger just for my family and friends. A stranger deserves the right to life just as much as anyone else.A bit of constant bitterness against liberals keeps you vigilant!
Uncle Lonny has decided that this forgiveness is reverse racism:
This guilt tripping white woman is a “liberal” Eloi. They are everywhere....
I bet this woman in NY would not be so forgiving if the thugs that gravely injured her were white racist instead of black racists.
“Liberalism” is a mental disease.
