On the occasion of World Forgiveness Day, I had given a small speech on Forgiveness as a “thought” in my school this June. Well it was easy for me to hunt stuff over the internet and write down the words but my effort and words were appreciated.
3 months have passed since and I don’t have a record of my words and my brain fails to remember the details.
But I think this is what I told.
We often face challenges in life and we confront opponents who offend and insult us on our faces and behind our backs. Even though, I have called them opponents, they might be friends or foes. They can hurt us and break our heart.
They might have asked for forgiveness or probably not. But we must do our duty. We must do what we are supposed to do. We must forgive them for their actions and treat them with love.
Forgiveness is the greatest and most powerful form of love. Sometimes it brings an enemy down to an acquaintance and an acquaintance to a friend.
It is one of the few forms of love which does not imitate. This love is the love which will always be remembered by the forgiven and it will be the secret strength of the forgiver.
So, people, remember that your duty is to forgive and you just have to forgive.
