Repost: The Chemistry Teacher From Libya #truestory #forgiveness

Anita Smith and her husband Ronnie moved to Libya because, “We saw the suffering of the Libyan people, but we also saw your hope, and we wanted to partner with you to build a better future,” Anita said in a letter published on VergeNetwork.org.

Ronnie was a chemistry teacher in a Benghazi school.

On Dec. 5, 2013, it all ended during Ronnie’s morning jog when he was shot and killed by an unknown gunman. In Anita’s letter, she addressed her husband’s attacker, saying, “I love you and forgive you. How could I not? For Jesus taught us to ‘love our enemies’ — not to kill them or seek revenge.”
