Just this morning while driving to work heard this poignant story on NPR and it reassured my belief in human hope. It is not just an hyperbolic statement. Many times in our lives we take decisions based on just our beliefs and what we see as 'right' at that moment. Later many years down the line when we look back, we realise how thankful we are to ourselves to have made that decision. It brings big lump in to your throat. It is due to the overwhelming joy.
