A father’s mission: Forgiveness

Michael Berg has forgiven his son’s killers.

It doesn’t mean he’s not angry. He still hates their actions. He still wants justice.

What it means, he told an audience not long ago in an Oklahoma City church, is that he doesn’t seek vengeance.

"I am a man of peace," he said, although clearly not always at peace. "I beseech others at every opportunity to be the same. I cannot accomplish my goal with hatred in my heart."
