A 39-year-long Lesson in Forgiveness

Anger makes you smaller, while forgiveness forces you to grow beyond what you are. — Cherie Carter-Scott

Good News of the Day:
A 12 year-old boy named Larry did something that he realized probably hurt his seventh-grade teacher. Over the decades he searched the internet in an attempt to locate that teacher — and apologize. His efforts were in vain … until a few months ago, 39 years after the original event, his search turned up an online article featuring the long lost teacher. Larry shot an immediate email to the newspaper. The poignant message was forwarded on to the journalist who wrote the article. “I found it buried in my in-box … only by chance was I curious enough about the subject line — “Customer Feedback” — to open the email from a man named Larry Israelson.” What follows is a profoundly moving story of the power of forgiveness.
