In 2003, Oprah conducted an interview with Jacqui Saburido, a 20-year-old girl from Venezuela, whose car was hit--head on--by a drunk driver in 1999.
The car caught fire, and Jacqui was burned alive. She was on fire for one minute and suffered third-degree burns on 60 percent of her body. The doctor on call that night said "she was charred beyond recognition; the eyes were totally exposed; the eyelids were essentially missing" ... and the nurse who cared for her said, "Her nose and her lips and her ears literally fell off in my hands." At the time of this interview (2003), Jacqui had endured 50 surgeries, with many more to come.
During the interview, the drunk driver's mother apologized to Jacqui but had trouble saying the words, and Jacqui hugged her and comforted her. Not many people are capable of that kind of forgiveness and love.
The video is very graphic, so if you're squeemish, you may not want to watch it, but if you do, you'll probably never forget it. Here's the link: www.youtube.com/watch?v=hecfPhLdX6M
