Fortitude

I was reading a recent interview with Michael Berg. He’s the father of Nicholas Berg, an American businessman beheaded in 2004 by a man believed to be al-Zarqawi, the recently killed al Quaeda leader.

Here’s a blurb from the interview:

O’BRIEN: No, no. And we have spoken before, and I’m well aware of that. But at some point, one would think, is there a moment when you say, ‘I’m glad he’s dead, the man who killed my son’?

BERG: No. How can a human being be glad that another human being is dead?

The complete transcript of the interview is available on the CNN website.

  1. That is pretty amazing. I can’t imagine how hard it must be to deal with the loss of a child and then resolve yourself to that act of forgiveness.

    What is more, he then jumps straight into the fire by facing the conservatives on CNN. Pretty inspirational.
