accidentfriendshipFreya Markowski was off her bipolar meds for the first time in years when she sped through a red light at 40mph in Nashville. She hit David Francisco, who was riding his bicycle, sending him to the emergency room with a spinal cord injury that left him unable to move his legs. After a few months of wrestling with what she had done, she sent a long apology letter to David that ended with “I lost my soul after the accident. I want you to know not a day goes by without me crying for your pain." The thing is, David had already forgiven her! On the day of her court date, Freya was blown away when the charges were dismissed! Instead of going to jail, she was greeted by a man with open arms. The two formed a friendship based on that forgiveness, and both has been instrumental in the each other's recovery since the accident. It’s a great lesson of forgiveness.
