This is an absolutely beautiful story. There are so many catastophic things going with the war in Iraq, China’s earth quake, Myanmar’s cyclone – thousands dead, celebrity problems … stories like this that are very important and very positive need to be brought to the forefront.

I am glad she forgave him but where was your “powerful” god during this horrific crime that took her family’s life? oh i know! this was “god’s plan”. well one good look at the bible and you can see all the slaughters sanctioned by this “god”, interspersed with some “mercy”.

The only cure for hatred is forgiveness. It works but I look at her face and I can tell the cure is difficult and painful. I could never have her strength to forgive the way she did. The country seems to be stronger for the experience because they have discovered what is really important in life. It scares me that this seems to be the only way such a lesson can be learned on such a large scale.
