Mr. Green...Shows Perfecton in the Grip of Pain
Nobody's Perfect: But...then there's this man. (play video)
Sometimes, you do witness perfection.
Here is a father, who only hours after his daughter is killed, manages to speak, not with revenge, or hatred, or blaming mass numbers of people for a crime committed by one person...but with more sense, and logic, than anyone else on the news.
As you can hear, he speaks with concern for his country. He says he remembers what happened on 9/11, and does not want America, to lose any more of its freedoms.
Compare this courageous and noble soul, to the relatives of Gabrielle Gifford: Her father blamed the tea party. Her brother-in-law, astronaut Scott Kelly blamed basically conservatives pundits, over "irresponsible words."
The Sheriff, who did NOTHING to protect this women even though he was aware of threats, blamed Rush Limbaugh, and "irresponsible words."
Now, you may say: Not fair Joyanna, they are in shock and grief.
Well, so was this man-- a father who lost his only daughter. A man grieving as much as a parent can grieve, found it in his heart to come out and...blame no-one, but talk with great wisdom, at the very worst time in his life.
If that isn't perfection, I don't know what is.
Years from now, the most poignant words spoken about the event, will not be Obama's, or Rush, Or Glenn Beck, or any other politicians...it will be this father...who's angel of a daughter, Christian Taylor Green, born on 9/11...will never again hear her father's voice.
Really great men, are the ones who can show us how to respond to the worst of times.
Thank you Mr. Green...and may God's grace and kindness shower you with help and guide you and your family in your great sorrow.
