A Moment of Grace

One of the Beatitudes from the Sermon on the Mount says:

Matthew 5:7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

The lady, who was hit by a turkey thrown through her windshield and required extensive surgery to reconstruct her face, showed mercy to the young man, when she met him in court. This young man was one of 5 other teenagers out having a good time, and got into trouble. But, he showed remorse for what he had done, and asked her forgiveness. She took him into her arms, hugged him, and forgave him. She told him she wanted him to make the best of his life that it could be.

Read The Issue of forgiveness in the Sermon on the Mount.

The Sermon on the Mount is just incredibly beautiful. Of course, Jesus wasn't having turkeys thrown at him :)
