A son nervously shows the index cards in his hands. His father looks on expectantly. Each card tells the story of the father who hurt him and his mother. Then the son writes something on a new card. Through tears, he holds up a card that says, "I forgive you." He falls to his knees in front of his crying father. Words flash across the screen from a quote by a Virginia Tech victim days before she was shot. "When deep injury is done to us, we never recover until we forgive. Forgiveness does not change the past. But it does enlarge the future." -Mary Karen Read
