Forgive and forget

Patrick McHugh | Friday, January 22, 2010

Everyone makes mistakes.
In regards to the cartoon (The Mobile Party, Jan. 13), everyone involved apologized, the editor resigned and the cartoon was banded. I believe that the apologies and actions taken after were done in full spirit and I am tired of reading people’s reactions to something that has been apologized for again and again.
As Christians, or even just as people, we are taught to forgive. This is not the last time someone will make an offensive joke about you and that statement can be applied to everyone. That is an unfortunate but real part of life and thinking otherwise is sadly unrealistic. Sure being made fun of sucks, but push that experience out of the way and use it to make yourself a stronger person.
