We can’t demand forgiveness from others (from white fellas or others). This story is about my mother and grandmother.
In late 1989 I was stricken with severe “crippling” back and body pain and often I fell on my knees in agony. After 9 months of treatment/pain killers, etc., I asked my doctor, “What is the prognosis?” …. his reply was, “We could operate, but you may end up a total cripple!” I went home in total despair and in an empty house, I looked up and pleaded, “Help me!”.
That was just the beginning of what turned out to be life transforming events.
