We have to start by forgiving: ourselves for what we have done wrong and with equal largeness of heart ‘our enemies.’ We have been born into a society convulsed with hate and ambition: may the next generation learn to love and forgive so they can live in peace.” (Michael Henderson, All Her Paths Are Peace, 1994, p. 124; photo congressovisible)
