The public seldom forgive twice.
Johann Kaspar Lavater
And God knows I needed to be forgiven. So I had to forgive everybody. And then God - as I read in the word, you're supposed to pray for your enemies. Try that one on.

God forgives us... who am I not to forgive?
God will not forgive us if we fail.
