Forgiveness . . .

We could all learn so much from Nancy Reagan, an elegant and gracious lady. You might recall that John Hinckley was a seriously deranged young man who shot President Reagan in the early 1980's. Hinckley was absolutely obsessed with movie star, Jodie Foster. In his twisted mind, he loved Jodie to the point that he was willing to assassinate President Reagan in order to make himself well known to her.

There is speculation Hinckley may soon be released, as it is believed that he has now been rehabilitated. Consequently, you will appreciate the following letter from Nancy Reagan to John Hinckley:

To: Mr. John Hinckley
From: Mrs. Nancy Reagan

My family and I wanted to drop you a short note to tell you how pleased we are with the great strides you are making in your recovery. In our country's spirit of understanding and forgiveness, we want you to know that we bear no grudge against you for shooting President Reagan.

We're fully aware that mental stress and pain could have driven you to such an act of desperation. We're confident that you will soon make a complete recovery and return to your family to join the world again as a healthy and productive man.

Best wishes,
Nancy Reagan & Family

P.S. While you have been incarcerated, Barack Obama has been banging Jodie Foster like a screen door in a tornado. You might want to look into that.
