Forgiveness is not for the person who has done wrong. “Forgiveness is for you. Holding onto hatred is like an acid. Letting go of the hatred allows you to get on with your life.”
Those were the words of Polly Sheppard, who was one of three survivors when a gunman killed nine people during a Bible study on June 17, 2015, at the Mother Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, S.C.
