The key to the path to redemption is through Fortitude (Rook), Faith (Bishop) and Forgiveness (King). I use symbolism in my abstract concepts to illustrate what that cannot be explained with words. This idea was inspired by PSALM 23 and a beautiful dream I had in February 2015. Most of my friends and family struggle with Faith. I struggle with Forgiveness from time to time and it my firm belief that once I will be able to overcome whatever it is that keeps me from finding it in my heart to forgive, I will become a better person mentally and spiritually.
