I saw this on Traci's blog and was completely blown away. What an amazing man with such and incredibly powerful testimony. I cried through the whole thing; I can't imagine how tragic that must have been. His love and forgiveness are amazing, and you put it perfectly, his example is invaluable.

oh i love it.
the boy who hit the family was in high school with my sister-in-law and that gentleman and his family were in a nearby ward. I am pretty sure he was the bishop at the time. I had heard the story of his forgiveness but never saw this--so thanks for sharing. He is such an example for us all.
By the way, thank you for your sweet comment on my blog! =)

Thanks for posting this. Me and John watched it and loved it. Amazing.

Also, i just got your comment about green smoothie girl and actually, that is the book i read about meat :) I'm still trying to decide how extreme i want to be, but even she says that she doesn't think minimal meat is bad. She believes that if your a vegan you loose out on a lot of essential nutrients. Interesting... Anyway, I love this kind of thing...healthful eating and such, we should talk sometime :)
