It looks like she forgave those geese for pooping on her!
But they still do it anyway! And still have that power! :lol:

I joke, but emotionally that works. People can't be angry back at those who forgave them. The circle is broken and there is no 'tit for tat' anymore.

My original joke does make some sense though. Just because a person forgives someone doesn't mean that person loses their power to continue retaliating if they are mad. (Not angry, but crazy). This only works when dealing with sane, rational people.
I close my eyes and see what I can see, whatever it may be.
It could be the sea, or I could see a bee.
Don't you see? It doesn't matter to me. Just let it be!

Pretty much.

The whole "eye for an eye" thing... well, you know the saying, if everyone had an eye for an eye, the whole world would be blind. :)
