As Desmond Tutu has countered, “in forgiving, people are not being asked to forget. On the contrary, it is important to remember, so that we should not let such atrocities happen again.”  ~  Jeffrey Renée

To forget a wrong done to us or anyone dear to us requires  more than death or removal of a few neurons. To forgive is to change how we handle those memories.
