The Power Of Love
By Kay Heitsch • June 7, 2016
I've seen what the power of love can do many times over the years. I'd like to share one story that touched me.
I was watching a murder trial play out. This defendant was a despicable human being. The day came for the sentencing. There was high tension in the air of the courtroom.
As I watched family members address the defendant hatred was spewed out of each one of them. The defendant sat with a smug, hardened look on his face. He was unmoved.
Finally, a woman stood up to address this man. I don't remember what she said, but her words were not filled with hatred. You could feel the atmosphere in the courtroom start to change.
All of a sudden this formally smug, hardened, defendant started to weep uncontrollably.
I was stunned to witness, once again, the power of love.
