I don't have TV, but I do make it to my mother-in-law's place. I also have a radio in my car. The last few days have been filled with things about Osama bin Laden. Public radio interviewed many people. Three stories stood out to me. One older man shared the story of his two sons. One was a fireman and the other was a police officer./They called him every day when they had a break at work. They both called on September 11. The last words they told their father was, "I love you, Dad." The last words the father told each of his boys were, "I love you, Son." He told the reporter how thankful he was that the last words they shared were love. A man working in the Pentagon that fateful day got a call from his wife. She told him what had happened in New York. He went to a lounge where many people had already congregated to watch the television. His wife was afraid for his life too. He assured her that he would be alright. Moments after ending the phone call, he said there was an awful crashing noise and fireball. He was blown across the room and every- thing turned dark and black. He crawled along the floor out of the room and eventually outside to the lawn. He had no skin left on his hands and had burns over most of his body. Later, he learned that of the small group of people still watching television, he was the only one that survived. He was so thankful. There was of a man whose wife died in the Twin Towers. He was asked what he felt about Osama bin Laden being killed. While some people before him shared their relief, anger, or bitterness, this man was different. "I don't hate the man," he said. "I've worked through that a long time ago. I'm not all the way to forgiveness yet, but I don't see why we had to kill him." Three men speaking about things like thankfulness and forgiveness, while they recalled a day that was evil and dark, isn't something that we are used to hearing. As I reflected on these stories I wondered why or how they could be thankful and t least trying to forgive while others spoke about revenge and more killing. I don't know. I also can't judge. I must be content to ponder these things in my own heart. I can try to emulate what I think are good examples. I can try to embrace what the Lord is doing in the Bible or what other people have done throughout history and in the world today. I hope that I can always be thankful. I pray that I can be forgiving. And already I know many times when I haven't been and when forgiveness has come so very slowly. Why is it so easy to believe the worst about someone? Why do I quickly judge someone else? Why do I rejoice when something awful happens to someone I don't like? One of my personal heroes is Monsignor Hugh O'Flaherty. He was an Irish priest working in the Vatican during and after World War II. When the Germans took over Rome, the Gestapo made the streets a killing field and sent thousands to death camps, including many personal friends of the Irish priest. To fight this evil, O' Flaherty hid thousands of people throughout the city at great personal risk. . The Gestapo chief was responsible for far more deaths than Osama bin Laden. At the end of the war he received a life sentence in a Roman prison. He had only one visitor as the years turned into decades. Every month, O'Flaherty would visit him. In 1959, the Butcher of Rome ac- ; cepted Christ and was received into the Catholic Church by the Irish priest. | As I reacted to the death of Osama bin Laden, I couldn't help but com- 1 pare him to the German colonel. I 11 continue to wonder. I'll continue pray. ,  Peace be with you. ?) , /! Schedules are subject to change.
