This sweet gesture of forgiveness will make you think twice about holding a grudge.
Ady Guzman-DeJesus lost her daughter 13-year-old Lourdes in 2012 after a 15-year-old classmate Jordyn Howe shot her on the school bus.
Jordyn brought his step-father’s gun to school to show off to his friends. When he fired it at the ground, nothing happened so he turned it towards Lourdes and fired again. This time it did fire, hitting Lourdes in the the neck which lead to her death.
Initially, Ady wanted Jordyn to spend the rest of his life in prison, but then she changed her mind. She realized that he was only a child at the time of the incident and has his whole life ahead of him. So Ady did the unimaginable and reached out to hug the man who killed her daughter and agreed that his sentence should be lowered.
