Acceptance and Forgiveness

Christian Pakistani immigrant Julie Aftab becomes a U.S. citizen 10 years after an attack that almost took her faith and her life.

Julie Aftab watched through her one good eye as a man made his way through the crowd of more than 3,000 to stand in front of her. Nadir Hemani was a stranger to her, but he took her hand in both of his and looked intently into her face. He had an urgent, personal request. Would Aftab, a Christian, please forgive the Muslim men who brutalized her 10 years ago, leaving her with horrific scars and forcing her to flee her home in Pakistan for refuge in the United States?

Check out the entire article, a wonderful story.
