The Dove on Forgiveness...again

Leila Abu-Saba's excellent essay on forgiveness is being tested. Her post today is a star in her crown.
Check it out.

I am here to tell you that forgiving the sins of your brothers and neighbors will make you feel good, will make the air sweeter and the sky brighter. Forgiving your enemies will make the worst burdens feel like air. The cancer diagnosis they give me is extremely grave, but yesterday I found myself laughing, joking and feeling elated - in the chemo lounge. My social worker said I am radiant. I spent the day happy, even though I am bald, even though my fingernails are falling off, even though I have no eyelashes. This world looks very good to me and I am surrounded by love.
