Many authors have spoken about the importance of forgiveness and the act of forgiving others, regardless of the injustice or crime committed.

Di's backstory >>> Frankly, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have shown the same strength of character that she did. She was on the recovering end of her grandmother's murder; a murder by a family member.

As you might imagine, for her, it opened wide the floodgates of awareness,, understanding, and, believe it or not, opportunity.
