On a cold February night in 2007, a devoted father of four and a seventeen-year-old drunk driver both received life sentences. In one violent, devastating instant, both faced a drastically different and uncertain future. But as Chris Williams sat in his demolished vehicle, staring at the car that had just caused the death of his wife, his unborn baby, his nine-year-old daughter, and his eleven-year-old son, he committed to do something extraordinary: he would forgive.
That decision launched Chris on a journey toward healing that impacted his family and friends, the young man who caused the accident, and an entire community a community that would face another deadly tragedy just a few days later.
Chris's message of empowering forgiveness is an invitation to all who have suffered, however unjustly, to lay down their burdens and "let it go.
