The power of forgiveness

“Forgiveness made me free from hatred. I still have many scars on my body and severe pain most days but my heart is cleansed.”

"Napalm is very powerful but faith, forgiveness and love are much more powerful. We would not have war at all if everyone could learn how to live with true love, hope and forgiveness.

If that little girl in the picture can do it, ask yourself: Can you?"

Kim Phuc is best known as the girl in the famous photo of a Vietnam War napalm-bombing attack near Saigon. She now lives in Toronto with her husband and two children. Her organization, Kim Foundation International, aids children who are war victims.

Read what Kim believes about forgiveness at the 'This I Believe' website.

Mercy triumphs over judgment! (James 2:13)
Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you
(Matthew 5:44)
These do not make you weak, remember, Jesus is tough as nails.
