“A believer knows that to let go, to forgive is for their own benefit. It is not easy. It takes courage, it takes strength and it requires the conviction in one’s knowledge that God loves and elevates those of us who are able to forgive those who have wronged us.”
In October of 2015, Jodie Burchard-Risch smashed a beer mug in Asma Jama’s face at an Applebee’s, telling her to “speak English.”
“Jodie Burchard-Risch approached Jama in an Applebee’s in Coon Rapids, Minnesota, where Asma Jama was dining with friends and conversing in Swahili, and told her to speak English or go back to her country. When Asma Jama told Jodie Burchard-Risch that she is a US citizen and speaks English fluently, Burchard-Risch smashed her beer mug in Jama’s face and ran away. Asma Jama required 17 stitches in her lip.”
On Tuesday, Asma Jama addressed her attacker in court forgiving her.
