The F Word

  • Ginn Fourie & Letlapa Mphahlele
    Drawing together voices from South Africa, Romania, Ukraine, Israel, Palestine, Northern Ireland and England, “The F Word – Images of Forgiveness” explores and celebrates the stories of people who have survived tragedy, lived through atrocity and who have found it in themselves to forgive. The visionary behind this is Marina Cantacuzino, a British journalist who founded The Forgiveness Project as a brave new initiative in the fields of conflict resolution and victim support. The project saw her set out on a quest to find people who had emerged from an atrocity without hatred and bitterness.

@Pam: Thanks so much for your comments. And yup, I think the minute you stop thinking that the rules apply to you then you are a prime candidate for committing fraud.

Lovely post Mandy, thank you! I only wish there was more encouragement for every single one of us to consider our own roles in making our society work as it does, rather than putting the blame on Them out there.

I have a particular contempt for people who think the law doesn't apply to them because they're rich... "rules are for the little people". They're the ones who whine about crime while happily driving way over the speed limit, avoiding their taxes, and actively supporting criminals by buying dodgy bargain goods and illegal drugs. They're very much part of the problem.
