A powerful video of the meeting between Ricky Jackson and the man who, as a boy, was responsible for him spending 39 years in prison, wrongfully convicted.
“All these years I’ve been holding this shame and guilt inside, wanting to release it, wanting to come forward and do the right thing,” said Vernon.
“I’m sorry,” sobbed Vernon.
“It’s all right brother. We were both victims man. It’s alright. I do forgive you man. I wanted to be here personally to tell you that.”
All the very best to you both – courage shown in differing ways and the power of forgiveness is an example to us all.
