A drunk driver killed Bill Lapierre’s wife the Sunday morning before Christmas as she packed up the car with donuts for a church event. Investigators say the driver had a blood alcohol level of more than twice the legal limit. His wife breathed “I love you,” and then…died. It must have been horrible. Just horrible.

But, Bill forgave the driver, saying that life is to short to hate. He forgave the person who killed his wife. Could you?

True, it is easier to forgive than hold a grudge, making forgiveness easiest course. But consider that it might be our duty to not take the comfortable forgiveness route. Perhaps it is ou duty to hold those who harm us accountable. Perhaps it is our responsibility to hold a grudge.
