(KSL Salt Lake City)   Mother whose daughter was killed during the Rwanda genocide has forgiven the man that killed her, so much so that they are now friends and live near each other and shop at the same market. I smell a new buddy comedy in the works   ( divider line

Yeah, only way I see that happening with me is if I'm trying to fool everyone so when the mangled body is found, no one would suspect me.

Solving what problem, exactly? That type of reaction only guarantees the indefinite continuation of violence. This murderer turned himself in and served his jail time. Then he sought out the families of his victims to ask them forgiveness. He also speaks out, unlike those who want to act as if nothing happened.

"There are Hutus who hate me for telling the truth. There are those up until now who participated in the genocide who deny they took part."

This is not the man you should kill.

Prof. Frink: And the only true way to know your enemy's heart is to see it sitting loose on your coffee-table.

You have to ingest it to truly know and experience its contents.

Horror has a face, and you must make a friend of horror. Horror and moral terror are your friends. If they are not, then they are enemies to be feared. They are truly enemies.

I guess I would have to say forgiveness is only viable when you know your enemy's heart. I'm not sure people can decide to forgive on their own. I'm not sure they should. If their enemy is guilt-ridden and asks for forgiveness, it seems like that's the important piece.
