    January Students of the Month 
    Theme:  Forgiveness
    Forgiveness is when you make conscious, intentional decisions to let go of resentment and anger toward someone for an offense - whether or not forgiveness is sought by the offender.  Forgiveness may or may not include pardoning, restoration, or reconciliation.  It extends both to others and to one's self.
