Today I saw an unbelievable restraint from a young man. It is the kind forgiveness the world is needed now. Although justice was not fair to his brother, Brandt knows that the number of years, even a life sentence won’t bring his brother Botham Jean back.

I, for once applaud his sense of courage and forgiveness. Let the world see that as an example, and perhaps this kind of injustice can stop. Give the other cheek the Bible says.
