This is one of my favorite interviews. I heard it when it was first broadcast, and listen to it a few times per year. I immediately went out and bought Braestrup's book and read it in an afternoon. It is especially insightful at times like these. I have never before or since hearing this show heard a better, more reality-based, more wonderful definition of "miracle" that what you'll hear in this interview. When communities large and small are affected by tragedies, natural disasters, or horrific crimes, we should always ask "what kind of community to we want to be?". And the answer should be that we want to be the kind of community where miracles, as articulated by this extraordinary person, can happen.I had the opportunity to meet Kate Braestrup at a book signing and she is just as fantastic in person as she comes off in the interview. Thanks for introducing her to this wider audience.
