In an interview with Clara Barton, the founder of the American Red Cross, a reporter asked her about an especially cruel thing that had been done to her years earlier. Miss Barton seemed not to recall the incident. “Surely, you remember,” said the reporter, and he gave some specific details concerning the incident. “No,” said Miss Barton. “I distinctly remember forgetting that incident.”

When we forgive and forget, we are imitating the way our Lord treats us when we repent of sin.
