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.

One thought on “Fortitude”

  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.
