Well, it certainly isn’t easy. I have to admit that I struggle with it on a daily basis. I am not, by nature, a forgiving person. I am stubborn, and my memory doesn’t seem to want to let go of things, including anger or frustration. But I do my best. And the more I try, the better I get at it.
On the other hand, there are some things that I just can’t conceive of forgiving. And I don’t tend to forgive unless the other person actually asks for forgiveness. Part of me thinks I should, and I’ve SAID that’s how it should be. But the truth is that I very rarely do it that way.
Even still, the father accepted the apology. He has his reasons. That doesn’t mean that *I* forgive Obama. He didn’t apologize to us, or to the military, so I’m not really required to forgive him, am I?
To be forgiven, one must first stop the wrongful behavior (repent) and strive to never do it again. The Kenyan-in-Chief proves that his “appologies” are empty through repeated instances of his improper actions.
