There are people....

I often yammer on about the attrocities of humanity and the sheer evil that humans are capable of, and yet, something struck me today like a bolt of god sent lightening...and burned through to the core of my soul like nothing has in a while...

There are people that forgive people who have murdered their families in cold violent hatred, They forgive these people...really forgive them.
There are people who survive horrible plane crashes and are burned all over their bodies and choose to live and cherish every moment as a small miracle, even something as simple as opening a bag or making their children's lunches.
There are people that go through the pain of losing a father, of never knowing a mother or having an abusive family and they persevere, even though the pain hangs dark in their eyes like some tangible thing...

There are people who's parents are killed in cold blood and completely rearrange their lives to care for nine special needs children. They sacrifice themselves to fate and God.

People may be capable of horrendous acts, terrible words, terrible sin...
but in that there is forgiveness, perseverance, love, and God is there through it all...amazing...we just have to seek it and choose.
