Just Forgive (Inspired By Mary Karen Read)

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~
(Mary’s Final Journal Entry)
R.I.P

Peter Read, the father of Virginia Tech shooting victim Mary Karen Read, said he never intended to give a eulogy at her funeral Mass today at St. Mary’s of Sorrows Church in Fairfax. But the retired Air Force lieutenant colonel climbed to the lectern at the end of the hour-long service to read from one of his daughter’s notebooks. He had found it only that morning.

It was a little red, bound diary where the former Annandale High School student had written some of her favorite quotes on forgiveness.

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.

He read from the notebook, an entry his daughter had penned in February. “That was Mary’s message”

Peter Read said, “I just wanted to share it with all of you.”

R.I.P to all those who perished in the VA Tech Massacre that took place on Monday, April 16, 2007.
This video was created by a student from UCF (from what I have gathered so far). The person who created this video was inspired by Mary Karen Read’s final journal entry about forgiveness. I am not sure who this person is but ALL credit goes to him/her for creating this video

Not forgiving someone
Is like drinking poison
And expecting the other person to die.
