    If a person ran over your kid because you were a lousy parent and wasn't watching it, you're gonna be mad? :upeyes:.

    You sound like Al Sharpton :shocked:

    Yes! I would pray for the ability to truly forgive that person.

    1) if I did not forgive, the only person I am harming is myself
    2) the person who accidentally killed my child did nothing wrong
    3) as the parent I would have to live with responsibility that *I* am responsible for the death of my child for allowing him to run around the parking lot.

    There would be nothing harder to do. Because the person who is at fault is the Parent.

    I hope they can find peace in themselves. For all involved.

    Kids run all over the place sometimes. It would be easy for me to see things going bad just out of normal accidents.
    I SHOULD not hold the driver responsible, but it would still be hard.

    Sure....I do not see how a logical person could blame someone for something they had no control over.
