Yes, gittalopctbi, if only they were a Christian nation, I'm sure the
parents would be more willing and even eager to forgive the men who abandoned
their duty to help the passengers, their precious children, as they went
horrifically to a cold, watery grave.I too hope they will someday
unburden themselves of the weight of unforgiveness, but this comes to each in
his / her own time.
I'm not discounting their grief or the tragedy of the deaths nor the
culpability of the captain, crew, and other authorities that led to this
horrific incident. I just want to point out that for the relatives to still
harbor such resentment and perhaps even hatred does them no good. Forgiveness,
as difficult as it may be for some in such a situation, is the best. To harbor
such feelings does your departed loved one no good and it only brings emotional,
spiritual, and physical harm to one's self.
