There are people who’ve established a relationship with the killer of a loved one and managed to forgive them. We all have friends who've forgiven negligent or abusive parents. Some have made peace with an ex-mate who'd tried to have a hit man murder them. The movie, "Crazy Love," was about a woman who was blinded and disfigured by a man hired by her jealous lover to throw lye at her face only to marry him when he got out of jail. Yet I can't forgive the Bush administration.
The ability to forgive may be a virtue, but it's also a gift. Bush, Cheney and company are not smarting because of my anger. I'm the one who's been railing around for the past eight years. Though Bush-hating has become boring, my fear is it's about to segue into McCain/Palin hating.
