A couple of weeks ago the sports awards show, The Espys, were on ESPN, and each year they give out a courage award. This year's recipients were the Thomas family. If you're ready to cry and hear more about this story, then watch this video:
The most amazing part of that whole story, to me, is just that family's natural inclination toward forgiveness and healing. That man's whole life ended up being the preparation that they needed to cope with his tragic death. Beautiful, beautiful story. And I also love that the Atonement is very much alive and present in the lives of other faithful people. I love seeing the effect that faith can have, especially with all of denigration of religion that secular society attempts to perpetrate.
