NYPD Detective Steven McDonald died last week. His story is a gift and inspiration. Although this account of wisdom manifesting as forgiveness does not need anything extra to make its point, I'll add a line that a man named Tom, in a class I taught many, many years ago, said to me after I'd spoken about the futility of anger: "Well Sylvia, I'm sure you know that forgiveness is the price you have to pay for freedom."
Here's Steven McDonald's story. May it encourage your heart, as it did mine.
