Forgiveness is very fine but the road to forgive someone especialy when that individual has done some thing that is unforgivable.Fellow students asked this question on pulling day.'If someone raped my mother would you forgive him and let him go free of the crime he has committed to your mother'?I have decided to send the question to you so that you can answer differently.Every body knows that rape is a crime but your work is teching something that is contrary to the rule of traditional laws in our society.These students are ready to revenge from the act of the last election last.
