Hawai'i International Forgiveness Day, 2:00 pm, August 1, 2021
Complimentary Virtual On-Line Event Celebrates Heroes of Forgiveness
Program highlights include:
Also honoring the 2021 Hawai'i Forgiveness Heroes -- people who have demonstrated the transformative power of forgiveness in their lives. We will be honored for their example.
Merton Chinen, one of the organizers and former Executive Director of Youth Services for the State of Hawaii, said, "Since its inception almost 20 years ago, the Forgiveness Project has been inspired by people from all around the world -- Fred Luskin at Stanford and Jerry and Diane Jampolsky from Attitudinal Healing, who were with us from the start. Through the years, this annual summer festival has united thousands of people from all walks of life -- from judges and legislators to community leaders, farmers and teachers -- to consider forgiveness as a new beginning. As a way to recognize and understand the past and forgive, to find justice and reconciliation through the practice of profound spiritual values, to transform tragedy into triumph. We're proud to continue in that tradition, this August 1."
