Students hear story of forgiveness
Special guests Jameel McGee and Andrew Collins shared their story of forgiveness to S4 students at the Berkeley Institute.
Chain Reaction Movement, which brought the duo to the island, engaged the students by asking if they have been hurt and would like to forgive those who hurt them.
Those willing to let go and forgive wrote their names on large paper, as shown in our photograph. CRM encouraged students to take part in their campaign by sharing their stories of hurt and forgiveness on social media using the hashtag #LetItGoBDA.
Mr McGee and Mr Collins, from Benton Harbour, Michigan, have been spreading the message to students about their unlikely bond of friendship and forgiveness.
Mr Collins, a white police officer, framed Mr McGee, who is black, for a drug offence that put him behind bars for four years.
Mr Collins later did jail time of his own for falsification of police reports and planting drugs.
