Modelling forgiveness

Last night my family and I watched the movie, Invictus which chronicles how Nelson Mandela used the 1995 Rugby World Cup to unify South Africa ["balancing black aspirations with white fears."] just after the end of apartheid. The movie shows the importance and power of forgiveness. It is challenging that Mandela could forgive whites for his thirty year imprisonment, mistreatment of his family, and much social injustice. Furthermore, he models this forgiveness with great integrity and effect on those around him.
