Knowing that I have faced many ‘giants’ by forgiving makes me understand that I have to think about alternative way of getting out of my current situations instead of fighting fire with fire. This quote reveals that Wilma has amazing strength and is able to defeat the ‘giants’ she has in her life even though they are extremely hard to.

Perez 16 in a problematic situation that involves forgiveness, it can become a huge ‘giant’ in someone's life. If you are able to forgive, you are defeating the giants that have come into your life. 27. “But the best answer is the one that David and Goliath has tried to make plain- that wiping out a town or a people or a movement is never as it looks. The powerful are not as powerful as they seem - nor the weak as weak” (Gladwell 268). 27. During World War II, Andre` Trocme` had a very difficult time because of the Nazis. He helped lead people safely away from the big crisis that was happening in Germany. He had to think in many different ways and it was very hard for him to make it out without something catastrophic happening.

We forget that there are ways that we can figure out in order to defeat an impossible task. I predict later in this story that Andre` Trocme` will defeat the task he has has and will succeed because he knows that there are ways around the ‘giants’ he is facing. 28. “The excessive use of force creates legitimacy problems, and force without legitimacy leads to defiance, not submission.
