His Holiness and Richard Moore at TCV

Day 1

As a young boy of ten in Derry, Richard Moore was struck by a rubber bullet that left him blind. His Holiness was deeply moved when he heard how Richard had felt no anger to the soldier who fired the bullet and completely forgiven him. Amazingly, from childhood to the present day he has never allowed bitterness to cont...rol his emotions. Richard has gone on to become the founder of Children in Crossfire that strives towards the creation of a safe environment for all children. In his citation to Richard, His Holiness says, "You are my hero; while I talk about forgiveness, you have made it part of your life. This is a wonderful model for others to follow".
