Take some time to listen to Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel talk about his experience in the Buchenwald concentration camp as well as his strong words about the absurdity of war. Encouraging us to not demonize those with whom we disagree, he mentions much more recent anti-human rights attempts to purge and cleanse such as Cambodia, Rwanda and Darfur.
In uniting this liberal principle of infinite hope and profound gratitude to the task of bettering the human condition while we are here on earth, he notes that there is always more to celebrate in the Other. After all, to love unconditionally is the act of faith.
