Father Hugs The Man Who Murdered His Son. What He Says Next Made Even Judge Burst Into Tears
When another person takes a life of someone you love you’ve got every right to be angry and bitter, to point a finger and demand justice or seek revenge. If this father punched a guy who confessed to being involved in killing his son, no one would blame him. If he cursed or refused to face him it would be OK. Instead he did something way more powerful.
While giving a victim statement in court Abdul-Mumin Jitmoud hugged the defendant and forgave him for what he had done. After his speech the entire court was in tears. I can’t imagine how much strength it took to do it… I know I wouldn’t be able to.
