Part memoir, part self-help, and completely inspirational, No Room for Vengeance in Justice and Healing is the true story of a teenage prank gone wrong, the woman whose life it nearly took, and what can happen when justice and forgiveness step ahead of the need for vengeance. Holiday season 2004. A snowy night. Two friends driving home from a family event. Teenagers on a joy ride, out for a night of mischief. And an incident that makes front page news in New York and beyond.
The incident causes several lives to converge: Ryan Cushing, the teen who threw a frozen turkey out of the window of a moving car; Robert Goldman, a psychologist and attorney working with juvenile offenders and in the middle of saying a prolonged good-bye to his mother; and Victoria Ruvolo, the woman injured by the teen.
Given little chance of survival, critically injured Victoria Ruvolo not only survives, she goes on to mentor thousands of teens -- including the one who injured her -- alongside Robert Goldman.
What does it take to leave vengeance behind in favor of forgiveness?
What happens when we do?
The inspirational story of a woman who decided to forgive and the thousands of people she impacted by doing so will warm your heart and change forever the way you look at vengeance, justice, and healing.
