Forgiveness cleanses the soul

THE EDITOR, Sir:

A meaningful message from Shelly-Ann Harris, in her letter to the editor published Tuesday with the headline 'That Steve Harvey Miss Universe gaffe', points out the importance of forgiveness. This is indeed a rare quality that we must seek within ourselves.

Just take an example from Nelson Mandela. His forgiving nature was a monumental stepping stone in the healing of a nation. Let's make his legacy live on.

Forgiveness is a cleansing of the soul, rightly put by Mrs Harris. Admit your mistakes, as Steve Harvey did, discuss matters that are 'clogging arteries', and try understanding.
