Sweet mercy is nobility’s true badge. – William Shakespeare

This quote reminded me of the story of a Nazi concentration camp survivor who came face to face with her captor and he asked her forgiveness.

This story was an extreme act of mercy and forgiveness that required a maturity beyond the reach of many.

Each day we have a chance to offer similar mercy to those around us.

To our spouse.

To our children.

To our co-workers.

To our friends.

To the waitress at the restaurant.

We can forego our rights and privileges and show mercy when it isn’t required.

Make it a great day.


Mercy – compassion or forgiveness shown toward someone whom it is within one’s power to punish or harm.
