$4.3 million in donations have come in from all around the world to help the families who lives were destroyed by Charles Carl Roberts. In the ultimate act of forgiveness, the community is donating an undisclosed amount to the widow of Charles Carl Roberts.

According to a statement issued by the community they donated the money because, “many from Nickel Mines have pointed out that forgiveness is a journey, that you need help from your community of faith and from God… to make and hold onto the decision not to become a hostage to hostility.”

Life goes on in Nickel Mines. A new schoolhouse is being built. For the five girls have returned to school. They have a long way to go to recover from their tragedy. They sure could teach the rest of us a lesson about forgiveness.
