A friend had a link for this on her blog and I dubiously went and read the article. It brought tears to my eyes with the beauty of the story. To me it says that forgiveness and hope are powerful tools.
On another note, I finally viewed Obama's inaugural speech. You will rarely hear me mention politics because I'm a bit jaded. I tend to think politicians are people who like the lime light and like to play games with what the rest of us feel are very important things. I am also put off with so many people portraying one man as the hope of the world. To me his name is Jesus and no one else can come close. Humans are frail and cannot carry the world. But I do hope that Obama means all that he says and is able to make some very much needed changes. From his speech I gathered that he feels it is a joint effort to be made by everyone which is the only way real change can be made. I hope that he will be a sincere and good president and surround himself with wise council and that we all keep him and our country in our prayers.
