Occasionally I meet or hear about someone and think: wow, he or she is something special.
That happened this afternoon listening to an interview with this young man on Radio Five Live.
Alex Hanscombe is the son of tragic Rachel Nickell who was brutally murdered on Wimbledon Common in 1992. Just three years old at the time, he was the sole witness.
His spiritual journey (spiritual not religious) left the female reporter out of her depth but was truly inspiring.
In a nutshell, he doesn’t forgive her murderer because of religious doctrine but as a result of his progression as a human being. He knows that unless he ‘lets go’ emotionally of what happened the person who will be hurt is himself.
Can’t wait to read his book…
