64 days of nonviolence practice - Amends

Day 30 – AMENDS (Feb. 28)

Make amends today. Apologize to someone you may have hurt and mean your apology sincerely.

We as Americans have not exercised our ability to repent and amends. Should we make amends to the blacks we enslaved, the Native Americans we have killed, the Viet Namese we invaded, the Iraqis whose land we invaded and destroyed? We, as a nation, have sinned seriously and have not recognized and acknowledged our sins let alone made amends for them. It is our arrogance and hubris that is destroying our nation.

Making of amends though starts with me. How can I make it up to the people I have harmed? How can I repair the damage I have done?

64 days of nonviolence practice - forgiveness

From a Season For Nonviolence - 64 days of practice.

Day 29 – FORGIVENESS (Feb. 27)

When we forgive, we are free to let go of the past and move on with our lives. We do not condone the hurtful behavior but we realize that there is something within us that is more powerful and important than this wounding experience. Today, write a letter to forgive someone. You do not have to mail it.

Who could, should, would you forgive today to set yourself free from grudges?
