    This was a great article. Thank you. Wonderful reminder this weekend as well.
    Our (at least my) gut reaction, when someone says they are sorry, is for me to say, "That's ok". Thank you for clarifying in your last paragraph - it's not ok. It doesn't make the actions ok, but saying to them, "You are forgiven" starts a healing within ourselves and the person who hurt us to begin to recognize the sacrifices our Savior went through for us. It gives us a little taste of the physical and emotional pain He went through for us. Forgiveness is powerful. Learn from our mistakes and others, but make sure forgiveness is always present.
