Sadies asks “What would you do?”

An Iranian woman who was blinded by a suitor who threw acid on her face has pardoned her attacker at the last minute, sparing him from being blinded by acid as retribution.
Sadie here:
The attack occurred in 2004 after she rejected his marriage proposal.
Bahrami had demanded qisas, or “eye for an eye”-style justice, allowed under Shariah law. A 2008 Iranian court order agreed with her, ruling she would be allowed to pour the corrosive chemical in Mohavedi’s eyes as retribution.
Three years later, Bharami changed her mind. Why? Would you? Why?
DQ here:  I’d like to think I’d do as she did and let my God measure out justice, but who knows what they would do until faced with such a situation?
