Our Blood Will Not Forgive
FORGIVENESS is the intentional and voluntary process by which a victim undergoes a change in feelings and attitude regarding an offense , lets go of negative emotions such as vengefulness , with an increased ability to wish the offender well. Forgiveness is different from condoning (failing to see the action as wrong and in need of forgiveness), excusing (not holding the offender as responsible for the action), forgetting (removing awareness of the offense from consciousness ), pardoning (granted for an acknowledged offense by a representative of society , such as a judge ), and reconciliation (restoration of a relationship ). In certain contexts, forgiveness is a legal term for absolving or giving up all claims on account of debt , loan , obligation, or other claims. As a psychological concept and virtue , the benefits of forgiveness have been explored in religious thought, the social sciences and medicine

Carmen From Kawachi
CARMEN (French pronunciation: ​ ; Spanish: ) is an opera in four acts by French composer Georges Bizet . The libretto was written by Henri Meilhac and Ludovic Halévy , based on a novella of the same title by Prosper Mérimée . The opera was first performed at the Opéra-Comique in Paris on 3 March 1875, where its breaking of conventions shocked and scandalized its first audiences. Bizet died suddenly after the 33rd performance, unaware that the work would achieve international acclaim within the following ten years. Carmen has since become one of the most popular and frequently performed operas in the classical canon ; the "Habanera " from act 1 and the "Toreador Song " from act 2 are among the best known of all operatic arias. The opera is written in the genre of opéra comique with musical numbers separated by dialogue. It is set in southern Spain and tells the story of the downfall of Don José, a naïve soldier who is seduced by the wiles of the fiery gypsy Carmen
