"Taking a (Second) Chance"
Stephen writes... "There are several topics one can never preach about enough, and one of them is forgiveness. This difficult and paradoxical attitude and emotion lies at the heart of a happy life, and turns an unhappy existence into one that may become, in time, joyful, open and free. Promising too much? I know one thing--without forgiveness, it is impossible to reach these other higher and healthier emotions, and without forgiveness, we can never touch true freedom."
