From the Quaker Campus, The Voice of Whittier College by Seth Feldman

For the last 15 years, Linda Biehl & Ntobeko Peni have traveled together many times and grown close. In a difficult way for many of us to imagine, the events in 1993 created a lifelong bond between those convicted and Biehl. In an article on The Forgiveness Project website by Linda Biehl, she explains, “I’ve grown fond of these young men. They’re like my own kids. It may sound strange, but I tend to think there’s a little bit of Amy’s spirit in them.”

To some, Linda and Ntobeko’s relationship may seem taboo, but experiences of forgiveness and positivity ring clear as they parallel the change that is the aim of the Amy Biehl Foundation. In some contexts, we see that forgiveness of ourselves and of others is healthy in overcoming the grief of traumatic experiences. In the case of Amy and her family, a tragedy was transformed into a force of goodness and philanthropy.
