To forgive...

Desmond Tutu in "The Book of Forgiving" tells us that: "The invitation to forgive is not an invitation to forget. Nor is it an invitation to claim that an injury is less hurtful than it really is... The invitation to forgive is an invitation to find healing and peace." He adds that in his native language, Xhosa, one asks forgiveness by saying Ndicel' uxolo - "I ask for peace."
