Two true stories of love in a hate infested world:
Benjamin was not alone when he was killed. One of my sons was with him, Benjamin Jr. He was only 12 years old and managed to escape. From behind a barrel he saw what they did to his father.
He came running home to Soweto to tell me what had happened. Even though my husband had predicted what would happen I could not believe it had happened.
My son Benjamin went to his room and wept and wept, all night. Then the Lord did something in the heart of my boy. He heard a wonderful voice, like his father had heard. His father had often told him, "Benjamin, you must take my place to sing for the Lord if anything happens to me." Early the next morning I heard singing, coming from my son’s bedroom. At first it was a broken voice, but then, it became clearer and clearer. I could hear my boy sing to the Lord. He sang a verse from the Scripture, "Father forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing."<
I could hardly control myself. O Lord, make me like my children. Help me to forgive.
My son and I have sung this wonderful song together ever since, in many meetings, in many countries, to many people who are hurt – and who need to forgive also.
Father forgive us, because we too do not always know what we are doing.

The Long Road to forgiveness, by Kim Phuc [the naked girl in the photo after the napalm bombing]:
from the interview, Kim states:
"I hated everyone who was normal, because i was not. My hate was like a mountain..Napalm is very powerful, but faith, hope and love are much, more powerful."
