How can forgiveness fit into contemporary society, such as schooling? 

Parents can use teachable moments when watching films or reading stories.  We have forgiveness education in schools in over 30 countries.  Books on forgiveness, magazine articles, newspaper articles on forgiveness can engender a curiosity about what forgiveness is and is not. A key issue is to begin conversations deliberately focused on the moral virtue of forgiveness. I have observed that such deliberate conversations are rare. It is my hope that they become more common in families, schools, workplaces, and other areas of communities.
