Mohandas Gandhi was killed by an extremist in 1948. The assassin held his hands folded in the Hindu sign of greeting but inside was a small-caliber gun. As Gandhi passed by he fired three shots mortally killing Gandhi. But, Gandhi, when hit immediately put his hand to his forehead in the Hindu gesture of forgiveness. How forgiving are we when others wrong us, not just slightly, but gravely? “If you are suffering from a bad man’s injustice, forgive him, lest there be two bad men.” Anonymous
