Forgiveness is fine for the smaller things in life, but how do you forgive the unforgivable–the most horrific and unthinkable acts that can’t possibly be forgiven? David Blakey tells how he walked through a heart-wrenching story of friendship, suffering, hardship and being there because it’s the right thing to do. He describes the heartbreak of a friend as her mother is dying of cancer, and that mother having to attend her daughter’s funeral. What do you do when there’s no one else to do the hard things in life? David’s talk describes showing up and doing the next right thing that was in front of him because there was no one else who could. The story takes him through his own process of grief, anger and ultimately, forgiveness.
