A message about peace

I heard Elie Wiesel speak tonight. He was very soft-spoken, combine that with his accent, and I had trouble hearing at times. But his message was still understood. He spoke about faith, hope and peace. It was good to hear him speak. Even after withstanding so much unthinkable human suffering and pain he still thought the world could be a better place. And that he could contribute to that. And so can we.

How awesome! I had to read "Night" in high school.

Okay, I have to tell you that when I talked to you the night before, I thought that you said you were going to hear a "helicopter rider" speak. I didn't know what that meant, so I'm sure that I sounded a little too enthusiastic and chipper that you were going to hear a holocaust survivor. :) I read "Night" a few years ago and didn't realize that this is who you went to hear! So enjoyed our visit!!

Sandi, that totally cracks me up. I think we were both hard-hearing during that phone conversation.
