For­give

Milwaukee Health - - PERSPECTIVE -

As St. Au­gus­tine said, re­sent­ment is like drink­ing poi­son and wait­ing for the other per­son to die. For­give­ness is medicine, lead­ing to a stronger im­mune sys­tem, heart health, men­tal health, lower blood pres­sure, health­ier re­la­tion­ships and more. UW-Madi­son’s Dr. Robert En­right stud­ies for­give­ness’ role in heal­ing from bul­ly­ing, gen­der-based vi­o­lence, poverty and trauma. More than 30 coun­tries are teach­ing his K-12 cur­ricu­lum on for­give­ness, in­clud­ing a group of Mil­wau­kee Catholic and char­ter schools, and he’s work­ing with the United Na­tions to bring it to schools in war zones.
