When the human spirit is filled with hope, miracles occur. The story today out of Turkey is welcome news after reading about all the death that the earthquake has left. A baby is alive and deemed healthy; her mother and grandmother pulled out alive, too. The country will set aside its usual hostility with countries like Israel and accept aid for its suffering citizens. Goodwill among enemies, a welcomed miracle.
