Jul 27, 2012 rated it it was amazing
An amazing collection of true historical events that changed people's lives from hatred to love by the acts of forgiveness. A model for our lives. I hadn't read about most of these, so it was an enlightenment and worth knowing about. Conflicts have to be settled, justice and unfairness resolved, but this is the most important step of moving towards a better world.
