Despite all he put her through, Michelle Knight says she forgives Ariel Castro.
“If I did something wrong, even if it was a small thing, I would want somebody to forgive me,” Knight said on this morning’s edition of the TODAY show on NBC. “So I can forgive him for what he done wrong.”
During the live segment with Savannah Guthrie, Knight also explained that she was saddened and confused when she heard Castro had killed himself in prison.
“Why would he hurt his children like that? Why would he leave them?” she asked. “He was a human being, and every human being needs to be loved – even if they do something wrong.”
When it comes to her current relationship with Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus — the two others who were held captive in Castro’s home — Knight says she misses them and hopes they can reconnect.
“Right now we’re all healing in our own way. Sometimes relationships, including friendships, don’t last that long. We were just in each others’ life for a short, minor time. Maybe, just maybe, one day we’ll get back together.”
