Forget and forgive, it has been a trending topic in the past few weeks.
Why? Because according to news, Japan is trying to to rewrite it’s World War II history.
And of course it did not sit well with the public, especially from affected countries.
It causes quite a heated and heavy discussion especially on local TV and radio stations.
And many commented negatively on their actions and asked them to publicly apologize for such act.
In which many try to preach for “Forget and Forgive” approach, but I really wonder if people really can forget and forgive.
Speaking for myself, I may forgive someone but I may not be able to forget.
In this case, I think it would be easier said than done.
Those who probably could forget and forgive probably are not related, was not from that time, have not suffered from the incident.
Probably weren’t born in that era – have not lived in fear, pain, hunger, probably tortured.
If every thing can be easily forgotten, there probably wouldn’t be any history, no innovations and milestones.
And really, not everything can be forgotten.
