Life afirming and aspiring

Quite a while back, earlier this winter, I read this article on-line at

40 Years Worth of Thanks

The tagline read:

"In 1968, a white firefighter saved a black baby girl, touching the heart of a divided city. The two did not meet again. Until yesterday.

And watch this:

Please go there and read it. Despite racial hatred in the late 1960s, despite many years of adversity for the baby girl, these two exemplify the staying power and honor of the human spirit.

I loved it so much I had to share it. I'm finally getting around to it and am glad I can do so.
