A few years ago, I stopped reading the newspaper. Not long after that, I stopped watching the televised news every night. It was just one of those things, I realized that I would sit and cry while watching the news or reading the paper, every single day. There is so much in this world that is evil and awful, and just downright painful, and I just couldn't take it anymore. I figure if something important happens, someone will tell me about it.

Luckily, every once in a while something great is brought to my attention (Thanks Jeni). Something that makes me believe in people again, something touching and wonderful that makes me proud of human beings, something that makes me appreciate the depth and strength of human character.

When I read their story I was moved. When I watched the video, I cried.

The strength of human spirit is astounding. The depth of a parent's love is awe-inspiring. We all are capable of this kind of achievement, its just finding that motivation to drive us.
