    But he doesn't apologize, do you get mad or do you shrug it off?

    Do you have a right to be upset? Yes or no?

    I am a man who tries to live his faith. God has commanded us to forgive all. I try to live that, though I will admit it's extremely difficult at times.

    I've actually been thinking about forgiveness alot today. I think it's one of the solutions to our nations problems. One that will be difficult, but one that is really the only way we will successfully avoid destroying each other.

    To be more specific. I think we have a duty to forgive.

    And he doesn't apologize? Assume somebody's momma done raised him poorly. Do nothing. If he doesn't care that he stepped, he doesn't care. Period.

    Who knows what's going on. Maybe he lost his job and he's hanging by a thread. But yeah; my first reaction is disgruntlement.

    I don't get mad about it. Why bother? With everything happening in the world today, it would be petty to get worked up about a momentary mis-step.

    Now if someone went out of their way to walk over and deliberately stomp on my foot, that would be a completely different matter.

    Most things aren't even worth harboring a grudge over.
