I always enjoy Mark Swinney's articles, and the one by him on forgiveness in the February 3 issue ["How do I begin to forgive?"] is no exception. Forgiveness is a theme that seems to have endless possibilities on which to expound.

Although Mr. Swinney didn't specifically touch on the aspect of individual freedom, he did mention it at the very end of his article. I have been made painfully aware that one's own health and harmony depend on his or her capacity to forgive. I am happy to confess that my reflexes for responding in a forgiving manner are much faster than in former days, when stomach pains and countless other discordant conditions were the unwanted consequences of holding on to a grudge.
