I well remember the event referenced here:
"Hate is a very big and very hungry thing with lots of sharp teeth, and it will eat up your whole heart and leave no room for love."I found the above on the front page of the website Spirituality and Practice which is, to my mind, one of the best spiritually focused sites going.
These words [were] spoken by a grieving father to his young daughter in the movie Amish Grace... This movie, based on the bestselling book, dramatizes the response of an Amish community in Pennsylvania when a local man killed five school girls and wounded five others. Shocked and grieving, their first act was to practice forgiveness.
