That has got to be one of the most amazing and courageous acts I have ever read about. I'm nearly speechless. Nice find acs.

There is not an award significant enough to offer to such a hero, except for the reward she is currently enjoying. ;-D

I have a great respect for the bravery of those girls, but this was something that shouldn't have happened and ideally, you don't want to have bravery shine in the face of tragedy and unfortunately that was the case here.

It takes superhuman strength, divine strength to find even an ounce of forgiveness for the loss of a loved one at the hands of another. Instinctively, we would react out of great anger and vengeance even, wanting retribution on those who have harmed us, but I also have a profound respect for people who can find it in their hearts to forgive, to some extent and in this case, complete forgiveness, the person at fault.

look at us, 10-20 online guys who discern this type of behavior? why dont we do somthing about it?

10 completely innocent little girls, 13 years old and under were targeted. is there nothing we as a community cant do for these people or for some part of awarness?

"It was very courageous of the girls to offer themselves," Rhoads said. "God was really present to give the girls that kind of courage."


Yes, God....present. Oooookay.

They took forgiveness to a whole new level. I can't even imagine not hating on somebody who killed one of my loved one. Much less forgiving him and care for his family. Wow, just wow at the great strength that religion can give people.

I think I'd do quite well in a simpler period of time. Harder work, of course, but less BS. Sounds good to me.
