On 16 Novem­ber, the United Na­tions (UN) marks the In­ter­na­tional Day for Tol­er­ance. Tol­er­ance means re­spect and ap­pre­ci­a­tion for the dif­fer­ences that make peo­ple and their cul­tures spe­cial.

Some peo­ple think that to be tol­er­ant we must also be for­giv­ing. One way of be­ing tol­er­ant is by show­ing for­give­ness to one per­son or a group of peo­ple who may have wronged you. How­ever, it’s not al­ways that easy to for­give.

Rec­on­cil­i­a­tion is the idea that peo­ple who were once en­e­mies can learn to get along again, and that friendly re­la­tions can be re­stored.
