Tuesday's Word: forgive

forgive* \fer - 'giv\ vb [ME forgiven, fr. OE forgifan, fr. for- + gifan to give] vt 1 : to cease to feel resentment against (an offender) : PARDON <~ one's enemies> 2 a : to give up resentment of or claim to requital for <~ an insult> b : to grant relief from payment of <~ a debt> ~vi : to grant forgiveness syn EXCUSE

Forgiveness is what this humble blogger hopes from those who may have taken offense with his actions of late. No harm was meant.

There are situations where forgiveness is not appropriate, ie, when actions are aggressive and meant to cause harm. Some of these would be the US Government's actions toward the indigenous of America, aka "Indians," Turkey's genocide of the Armenians, and England's use of the Black and Tans in Northern Ireland.

Said actions were made before the post was published.

How goes the arena of redemption? I have not notice any positive responses in your comments.

One would imagine the offenses forgotten before they were announced!
