Colleen Haggerty’s Ted talk was very touching and you can feel the pain she felt through he power of words. She suffered from loosing a limb after being a severe car crash years back. She explained how difficult it was for her to deal with loosing her leg. She explained how she knew she needed help, she developed post traumatic stress disorder and felt so angry and hopeless at most times throughout her life since the accident and she did not want to deal with that for much longer. She needed to learn how to forgive the man who changed her life. Such a powerful talk and amazing message.
I have not read this book but from the summary it seems like a very interesting book and has several different views on how to forgive others and yourself in different steps and methods. The book basically teaches you through different actions and steps to one by one forgive those you didn't think you would be able to forgive. Although I have not read it, I would recommend it to those who struggle with learning how to forgive those who hurt you or betrayed you.
This particular song describes how people need to learn how to forgive each other rather than create more conflicts or enemies. It discusses how powerful forgiveness can be and how much easier it makes trials through the power of music. It is really pretty and in a way, calms you down. I love the massage and the lyrics. It is empowering and teaches you that forgiving is the more positive answer to the worldly problems or trials we go through. Although forgiveness isn't the easiest path to take, it will eventually become the path that makes you happiest as an individual.
A remarkable act of forgiveness by Chris Williams who lost almost everything due to a drunk driving accident and still managed to forgive the driver. Truthfully I cannot imagine how it would be to lose any members of my family but for this man to lose his pregnant wife and two of his children and still feel compassion and forgiveness towards the person who took away what made him happiest is incredible and so heartwarming. He truly turned a tragedy into a life lesson.
