We Must Learn To Forgive

Dear Editor,

These words are from a sermon delivered by Martin Luther King Jr. that, if applied, could surely guide our country back to civility and constructive discourse: “We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive.  Those who are devoid of the power to forgive are also devoid of the power to love.  There is some evil in the best of us and some good in the worst of us.  When we discover this, we are less likely to hate those with whom we disagree or whom we deem to be different.”

Oh, that we would adopt this approach!
