Man Embraces and Forgives

*This story is for all those still holding a grudge. Its for you, if you find it hard to let go of the anger and hurt and pain that someone has caused you … even if it happened decades ago.

I don’t know if this story will bring you closure, but it may leave you with a greater sense of conscience and the affirmation that, “If he can forgive after what happened to him, maybe I can too.”

The year was 1975. Ricky Jackson was 18 years old when he and his friend, Wiley Bridgeman were convicted for the murder of a money-order collector at a grocery store in Cleveland. Jackson was named as the shooter… erroneously. In actuality, he had nothing to do with the man’s death.

But that didn’t matter… the police had a witness
