He has seen it in the most unlikely places, witnessing the freedom individuals have gained simply through acts of giving. He tells of Deborah, a mother in Rwanda whose son was murdered, but whose faith and courage brought her to a place of reconciliation with the killer. In another anecdote, he introduces us to a boy in Kosovo whose spontaneous generosity was a moving testament to the goodness of the human spirit.
