Ingrid Betancourt freed at last.

I was moved to tears by the release of Ingrid Betancourt . She has been held hostage for 5 years by rebels in Colombia and is now back in the arms of her long suffering family. She was campaigning for president when she and her vice presidential running mate Clara Rojas were kidnapped and taken hostage. Ms. Rojas was released earlier this year and reunited with her four year old son who was conceived and born in captivity. What amazing women these must be to endure such a horrendous experience and come out with an attitude of wanting to continue in public service.

    I’m so much in awe. I often doubt whether I’d have the courage to endure hardship or injustice, and her strength makes me ashamed of my petty complaints.
