Today I read of a recent execution in Iran stopped by the victim’s mother slapping the face of the man accused of her son’s murder.
For her this was enough.
How civilised the mum.
“An eye for an eye” is not the only, or best way forward.
Easter is the time when we need to focus on the importance of forgiveness.
It’s the only way to solve the world’s problems, whether caused by the Ayatollah, or the IRA, or rampant capitalism – and often a cocktail of them all. 
I’m currently learning by heart a passage to recite at my son’s wedding. 
Part of it goes like this:
“Love doesn’t demand it’s own way.
It’s not irritable or touchy…
It does not hold grudges and will hardly even notice when others do it wrong. 
It is never glad about injustice, but rejoices whenever truth wins out.
It’s a good passage for us all to learn by heart.

Now 70, I'm getting back into website development and brand protection, as well as showcasing the delightful artistic talents of my beautiful wife Lynne. My projection will encompass a lifetime of database marketing, as well as the Christian democratic socialist ideals of my wife and I.
