This video on Rwanda and forgivenes is gripping. If you have not seen Hotel Rwanda, I would definitely see it. What happened in that country with genocide, with husbands killing wives, children killing parents, was unbelievable. And so are the stories of forgiveness that flow. In this story, a simple gift of a shoebox--expressed from the love of Christ--helped this young man, Alex, find hope and lead him down the path to forgiveness.
Alex went to the prison of the man who killed his family to offer him forgiveness. So touching.
