Yet she knew that the way forward must include an attempt to forgive. Her intuition told her that trying to forgive was the only way to free herself. This led to a deep reckoning with the part of her and every human that is capable of doing harm. It then led, ultimately, to work in prisons with people who had harmed other families in just the way she had been. Bringing an open and forgiving heart into the prisons with her, she was able to touch the people on the other side of the equation deeply and fully, bringing a sense of restoration to them and to herself!
