Daily Insight:
Desmond Tutu on Forgiveness

“Forgiveness does not relieve someone of responsibility for what they have done. Forgiveness does not erase accountability. It is not about turning a blind eye or even turning the other cheek. It is not about letting someone off the hook or saying it is okay to do something monstrous. Forgiveness is simply about understanding that every one of us is both inherently good and inherently flawed. Within every hopeless situation and every seemingly hopeless person lies the possibility of transformation.”

― Desmond Tutu, The Book of Forgiving:
The Fourfold Path for Healing Ourselves and Our World
