Aledo, Illinois - How to heal and forgive after being wronged will be discussed at Lifetree Cafe 7 p.m. Thursday, March 6.
The program, "The Struggle to Forgive: Finding a Way Forward," features the filmed story of Alicia Brady, who was the victim of a gang-related drive-by shooting.
A dancer, Brady sustained injuries that caused her to lose the ability to perform competitively. "Dancing was my life," says Brady. "Everything I had worked for was taken from me. I had lost that life, and I wasn't going to get it back."
Brady tells about the shooting and her struggle to recover physically and emotionally. The program will offer guidance for those who find it difficult to heal and forgive after being wronged by others.
Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Snacks and beverages are available. Lifetree Cafe is located at Lifetree Cafe-Aledo, 606 SE 3rd Street, Aledo.
