Emily, United States


In 2009, I traveled with my friends to South Africa to learn more our world. In preparation for my trip I read several books including No Future Without Forgiveness. This book changed my life. I realized how much forgiving I had to do which seems minor compared to what he did. And I have accomplished that forgiveness and I now I teach others about forgiving in the program I do for The Grief and Happiness Alliance. Archbishop Tutu was such a gift to the world, and I am eternally grateful for the inspiration he is in my life.

With so much love,


emily with her book, loving and living your way through grief
