He could remain imprisoned  by overwhelming grief, allowing it to festerinto destructive anger, or he could try the path of forgiveness long prescribedby the various spiritual traditions. Azim chose the later, gaining more thanthe ability to live with the reality of his son’s death in the process.In forgiving his son’s murderer, he came to experience self-acceptance, abidingpeace, and a renewed sense of purpose.
