Channel Esther: What We Forgive Again

Esther Cohen
October 11, 2016

by Esther Cohen

Peter said

do you understand how possible it is

to have a good life with very little

it is the time of year when we can

forgive all our wanting, when we

can understand we don’t have to do

all that seems necessary that we can’t

by ourselves make the world

better. We can try.

Just a little. We can invite

the man from Albania and his wife

to dinner. We can be there

as much as we can. We can

understand how human

we all are.
