Pardon Day is celebrated every year on September 8 to encourage people to put aside their grudges, seek forgiveness, and forgive those who may have hurt them. While people commonly use the term pardon as a synonym for forgiveness, the term originally referred to an official or legal action that released a convict from the punishment of a crime. In a legal context, the head of state, government, or religious entity usually grants a pardon.

Pardon Day dates back to September 8, 1974, when President Gerald Ford presented a controversial pardon to ex-president Richard M. Nixon after being implicated in one of the United States’ most scandalous events, the Watergate affair. Nevertheless, Nixon was remorseful for committing wrong-doings against the nation and its people, and President Gerald pardoned him. The day may have a controversial origin, but it reminds us of the significance of forgiveness.
