  1. What a wonderful story of enlightenment! We have many opportunities to hate, but so few to notice we can do better than that. What I loved about this story is Frank’s awareness that hate is an ideology in and of itself. How nice it is that he used that awareness to counter it! The trouble with living is that we only have our own lives as a point of reference and understanding. Good for him for sharing a greater lens!
