Power of Forgiveness! Vicar: No!

Vicar who can't forgive steps down from pulpit
(Telegraph UK, Mar. 7, 2006)
A vicar whose daughter was killed in the London bombings has resigned because she finds it hard to forgive the men who carried out the suicide attacks.
See also The Times (UK)

It was Jesus who said, "Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven." Matthew 5:44-45a The truth is that God gave us forgiveness (through Christ) even after what we did (by our sin) in killing His son on the cross! What should that mean for one who claims the name of Christ and yet refuses to forgive another?

The Vicar says she "can't" forgive? Is it "can't" or "won't?" What would you do?
