Light in Darkness

Joining Maria for her weekly meme Light in Darkness.

Well, even if everyone else posts this, it’s worth me posting. Martin Luther King Jr said famously, “Hate cannot drive out hate. Only love can do that.” Antoinette Tuff did exactly that. She was more than grace under fire.  More than cool-headedness. She embodied love for a man whose self-hatred drove him to attempt something awful and tragic. But because Antoinette had compassion, empathy and love, she averted a terrible tragedy. How can we, in small ways, embody Christ’s love every day for people we encounter. Who knows how this world could change for the better if we could all be like Antoinette.

  1. What I love most about this story is how she gave credit to God for her heroic action. To be able to tell this young man that she loved him & that she prayed for him in the face of fear…WOW! She’s truly an inspiration to us all. Thanks for sharing this!
