Peace Rally - 9/11/2010

Nelson County resident Kia Scherr lost her daughter and her husband in the Mumbai terrorist attacks on November 26, 2008. In other words, Kia Scherr has every reason in the world to be an angry and vengeful human being. Yet when I met her and heard her speak at the 9/11 peace rally this past weekend, I was amazed at the fact that someone who has such a legitimate claim to bitterness and hatred has instead dedicated her life to promoting peace and reconciliation among peoples. What an inspiring woman.
