An Amazing Attitude

I just read this article about a guy who has been released on parole. The person he killed was called Chris. Chris' mum wrote to the parole board and this is part of what she said:

Ngatai should always remember Chris when he leaves prison, when he leaves home for a life of independence, when he runs onto a rugby field, when he turns 21, when he meets his first love, when he marries and when one day he has his own children. Let him remember Chris and what Chris missed out on and hopefully this will inspire him and give him the courage to make his life a success.

I'm amazed at that attitude. She is incredible! To be able to say to the person who killed your son that you wish him to have a successful life. If only more people had that wisdom.
