The road to forgiveness

I accidentally got into reading this book because Brave cleaned out his drawers and intended to throw it away. The title is pretty simple yet catchy. As I started reading the book, I felt a big theme of God admiration and belief that the authors embedded in their story. Two happy parents were shocked when they lost their mother and daughter at the same time in an accident caused by a drunk driver. A tragedy, a lost, a nightmare, a sadness and angers are possibly seen. Suffering from the terrible incident, the couple tried to think openly and believe in God's guide to their lives. They finally forgive the "murderer" and befriended with her. As much as I don't like all the monologues with Gods and the religious parts of the story, I love the way the story ended and how the couple pass through " the road to forgiveness". It was not easy as we might think. There's always a self-contradiction in each of us anytime we try to forgive someone. But we need forgiveness to move on, and life needs forgiveness to be pink. Anytime that there's a possible thing to be forgiven, let's do so as you would feel much relieved. Forgiving someone is to open an exit for that person and you as well. Sometimes it's hard to forgive, but overcome your own selfishness and do the best you can.
