Forgive them

There was a time when I wrote something and put it out there only to receive a very demeaning comment in return from what I thought was a life long friend.  The comment was filled with lude energy and anger concerning a subject that you would think would have generated just the opposite response.  I managed to delete the comment from my space but I found that though it was missing from my sight, it was still embedded in my heart.
I had the luxury to sleep on the energy and though I had imagined mean things to respond with, I was granted enough time to let the energy disapate.  As I mentally worked to resolve the feelings of betrayal from a once close friend, I had some simple and kind thoughts come to my mind.
