In response to daily post’s one-word prompt : Mistake
To err is human, to forgive Divine___ Alexander Pope
I have the quote of Alexander Pope, before me, yet I’m not convinced, all mistakes can be forgiven. If my mistake happens to be a misplaced letter in a word, I can erase it and thank myself I edited it on time, hence all is well.
How would anyone forgive a driver of a vehicle, whose blood alcohol level is higher than normal and who knowingly drove his vehicle and killed someone. That someone could be someones daughter, husband, or mother. How can anyone forgive this. I think this error is unforgivable.
There are many types of mistakes that can be forgiven, because they are trivial and there is no lasting effect on the human who receives it.
