Right turn, Clyde

I've been reading Freedom First, and realized it's really just a collection of small articles. Not really ripe for discussion.

So, I'm loading the deck, and offering up a different and SUPERB book.
The Sunflower: On the Possibilities and Limits of Forgiveness. Now, granted, this book also has dissertations at the end, written by people such as Bishop Desmond Tutu and the Dalai Lama.

Here is a little blurb...

Author Simon Weisenthal recalls his demoralizing life in a concentration camp and his envy of the dead Germans who have sunflowers marking their graves. At the time he assumed his grave would be a mass one, unmarked and forgotten. Then, one day, a dying Nazi soldier asks Weisenthal for forgiveness for his crimes against the Jews.
