Sometimes A Little Thing Makes It All Worthwhile
I sometimes feel like quitting this blog - feeling that I’m banging my head against a wall and preaching to the choir – and then some little thing happens that makes it all worthwhile.
I’ll explain: in 1985 Muslim terrorists hijacked an American plane, TWA Flight 847, in Lebanon and terrorized and brutalized the passengers on the plane as it sat on the Beirut Airport tarmac. One terrorist, Mohammed Ali Hamadi, murdered an American sailor as he sat on the plane, and his body was thrown out onto the pavement. The young man’s name was Robert Stethem.
The terrorist-murderer was later caught in Germany and spent time in a German prison before the Germans traded him for a German hostage in 2005. At that time I wrote a blog piece entitled, “I Remember Robert Stethem”. You can read that article if you like by clicking on the link.
The very nice thing that happened was that yesterday I got an e-mail from Robert Stethem’s sister who had reread my piece and felt it helped her a lot in facing the new year that a few of us still remembered and honored his memory.
