"The Healing Power of Holding a Grudge" Acticle Response

In the article, Simon Doonan says that some things are just unforgivable and sometimes its okay to hold a grudge. There has been a give forgiveness movement where the families and friends of murder victims are saying that they forgive the person that killed them. Doonan says that all we have are our lives and if taking them away is forgivable, then we are left vulnerable. I agree with some of what Simon Doonan, the author of the article, was saying. There are times when holding a grudge is silly and unhealthy, like if someone runs into you in the hallway. Other things, such as murder, rape, and animal cruelty are not so easy to forgive.
