LoveWhat would make a Father give his Son to a band of thieves and bandits to have their way with him?


What would make a man give up a good name for ignorant ridicule and scoffing?


What would make a mother bring her child into a world through scandalous appearances?


What would make a Man give up his limitless freedom for limitation and pain?


Why would a God grant freedom to a human race knowing it could result in it killing itself in twin towers and elementary schools?


Why does a man give up a well-paying position to serve in a dangerous and low paying role among a group of misfits?


What makes a successful businessman take a large portion if his profits and devote it to serving a poor country who will never fully understand nor repay him for his efforts?


What makes a woman continue to walk down dusty paths to serve the lame and mentally ill at a no-name hospital?
