I follow John Pavlovitz on Facebook. I didn't actually ask to follow him, but I read so many of his articles that Facebook apparently decided I needed to become a follower. He's further to the left politically than I am, but I do like his messages of peace, hope, and love.
I hate having to copy and paste his words here: I'd rather link straight to him, but it's on Facebook, and not everybody has that. The following story is in his own words, exactly as he told it.
