Forgiveness Is a Strength, and Her Courage Changed Her Shooter’s Life
It takes incredible strength to forgive the person who shot you and threatened your family, but Debbie Baigrie did just that. Her shooter, Ian Manuel, was just 13 at the time, but ended up in prison for life. On a whim, Manuel called Debbie one day to apologize and wish her happy holidays. It started a path to helping them both heal, and when he was released from prison, the woman who ended up helping him back onto his feet was none other than Debbie Baigrie.
