When I read the tragic story of a drunk driver that killed 4 children, I just could not hold back my tears. Especially because the words that one of the mothers spoke.
She said,”You may have lost your freedom but I have lost my flesh and blood. I refuse to show anger but to show love. Love always conquers.”
That statement conveys the deep hurt she suffers, and the greater the measure of the sufferings because she chose to remember yet forgive, and the undenied trust that love always conquers in the face of that suffering.

My mind wonders to the conversation in heaven, when God discussed about His eternal plan of sending Jesus to die & save mankind. In those conversation, the love, pain, sorrow, joy, wrapped into one. And divine love conquers all effect of sin & curse. What a victory.
