Forgive and Forget

Two soldiers became prisoners-of-war.

Both were treated with great cruelty by their captors.

When the war ended they returned home.

They were interviewed by a journalist who asked them if they could ever forgive their captors.

One of the soldiers said, “No, never. I shall never forgive or forget.”

The other soldier turned to him and said quietly, “Then you are still in prison.”

Even if you are unable to forget, you must always try to learn to forgive, however harsh the circumstances!
