“The best thing to give your enemies is forgiveness.”Benjamin Franklin
Students are told to follow the path of empathy and forgive those who do them wrong. This mandate is relatively easy to follow when their friends slip up and do something bad to them. Forgiveness in these cases often results in stronger friendships. But they are hurt by their enemies as well and must decide whether or not forgiveness is really worth it with them. This is a vexing ethical dilemma for which there are no easy answers.
According to American diplomat and framer of the Constitution Benjamin Franklin, you should think of forgiveness as a gift to give your enemies. Revenge gets you nowwhere.
Revenge is the best thing to give your enemies. Forgiveness is a sign of weakness.
Should you ever forgive your enemies?
