TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH,"

CRISIS IN UKRAINE.

COULD PRO-RUSSIAN PROTESTS

LEAD TO CIVIL WAR?

Wendy: PLUS, WOMEN IN

COMBAT.

A LOOK AT THE MILITARY'S

PUSH TO PUT WOMEN IN

FRONT-LINE ROLES.

AND BOSTON STRONG, HOW

FORGIVENESS IS HELPING

PEOPLE HEAL ONE YEAR AFTER

THE BOSTON MARATHON

BOMBINGS.

ALL THIS AND MORE TONIGHT ON

"NEWSWATCH."

GOOD EVENING, EVERYONE, I'M

GEORGE THOMAS.

Wendy: AND I'M WENDY

GRIFFITH.

REPORTS TONIGHT OF GUNFIRE

AND TANKS ON THE MOVE IN

EASTERN UKRAINE, BRINGING

TENSIONS THERE TO A NEW

LEVEL.

George: YEAH, VERY MUCH

SO.

THAT COMES AS THE GOVERNMENT

IN KIEV IS CRACKING DOWN ON

PRO-RUSSIAN PROTESTS IN

SEVERAL CITIES, AS JOHN

WAGGI EXPLAINS IN TONIGHT'S

TOP STORY, IT IS A MOVE THAT

COULD?

TRIGGER A SHOW OF FORCE

FROM UKRAINE.

SUPPORTERS OF MOSCOW HAD

TAKEN OVER POLICE

HEADQUARTERS AND SET UP

THEIR OWN CHECK POINTS.

ACTING PRESIDENT, OL

OLEKSANDR TURCHINOV CALLED

IT AN ANTITERRORIST

ORGANIZATION IN EASTERN

UKRAINE.

ANGRY RUSSIAN ACTIVISTS

ATTACKED A RUSSIAN CANDIDATE

AS HE WAS LEAVING A TV

STATION.

EARLIER, ANOTHER SIGN OF

TENSION AS A RUSSIAN JET

BUZZED A U.S. NAVY SHIP AND

THE BLACK SEA.

THE JET REPORTEDLY MADE A

DOZEN PASSES OVER THE U.S.S.

DONALD COOK FOR MORE THAN 90

MINUTES.

THE MESSAGE IS, WE SEE

YOU, WE DON'T LIKE YOU IN

OUR BACKYARD, AND WE WOULD

PREFER THAT YOU LEAVE.

Reporter: IT IS ONE

MORE INCIDENCE OF VLADIMIR

PUTIN THUMBING HIS NOSE AT

PRESIDENT OBAMA.

WHEN THE PRESIDENT AND PUTIN

SPOKE FOR 90 MINUTES ON

MONDAY, THE WHITE HOUSE

EXPRESSED GREAT CONCERN OR

PUTIN'S SUPPORT OVER

PRO-RUSSIAN MALITIA

DESTABILIZING UKRAINE.

WE KNOW WHO IS BEHIND

THIS.

THE ONLY PEOPLE CAPABLE OF

THE COORDINATED OFFICIAL

MILITARY ACTIONS IS RUSSIA.

Reporter: THE

ADMINISTRATION AS TOUGH

ECONOMIC SANCTIONS ARE

BEGINNING TO TAKE HOLD, AND

ARE THREATENING TO RATCHET

THEM UP IF PUTIN DOESN'T

BACK DOWN.

BUT PUTIN HAS MORE THAN

DOUBLED THE PRICE OF NATURAL

GAS SINCE THE PRO-RUSSIAN

UKRAINIAN PRESIDENT WAS

OUSTED IN FEBRUARY.

THAT MAKES LIFE MUCH TOUGHER

FOR THIS MAN AND HIS WIFE,

PEOPLE WHO LIVE NEAR KIEV.

HE SAYS, WE WILL SIMPLY STOP

BUYING ALL OF THE THINGS WE

ARE BUYING NOW BECAUSE WE

HAVE TO HEAT THE HOUSE IN

ORDER NOT TO FREEZE.

PRESIDENT OBAMA SAYS HE HAS

NO PLANS TO SEND WEAPONS TO

UKRAINE.

JOHN WAGGI, CBN NEWS.

George: SERGEY FROM THE

RUSSIAN MINISTRIES JOINS US

FOR MORE.

AS WE SPEAK, UKRAINIAN

FORCES ARE MOVING AGAINST

PRO-RUSSIANS.

WHAT ARE YOUR CONCERNS RIGHT

NOW?

WE'RE GETTING LOTS OF

CONCERNS ABOUT OUR FAMILIES

AND OUR CO-WORKERS'

FAMILIES, ABOUT CHURCHES

THAT ARE IN THAT AREA.

AND AS YOU HAVE SEEN

PROBABLY ON THE NEWS SOME OF

THE GLIMPSE OF THE REPORTS,

BUT WE SEE THAT THE TENSION

IS NOT JUST GROWING.

THERE IS ALREADY FIGHTING.

AND THERE IS BLOOD.

AND AS WE SEE THAT THE NEW

UKRAINIAN GOVERNMENT, THE

INTERIM GOVERNMENT MADE AN

ORDER TO MOVE IN AND START

PUSHING OUT THE SEPARATISTS,

THEY LOOK LIKE VERY

WELL-EQUIPPED SPECIAL

FORCES, AND SPEAK WITH A

GOOD RUSSIAN ACCENT, AND

BLACKEN THOSE ADMINISTRATION

BUILDINGS IN ALL OF THOSE

TOWNS.

George: THAT TO POINT,

SERGEY, THE RUSSIANS DON'T

NECESSARILY NEED TO MOVE

THEIR TANKS ACROSS THE

BORDER.

THEY CAN JUST SEND THE

SPECIAL FORCES THAT DON'T

WEAR ANY INSIGNIA.

THEY ARE RELYING ON THEM TO

CREATE THE CHAOS?

THAT'S WHAT WE SAW IN

CRIMEA.

THEY SENT LOTS OF

PROPAGANDA, AND THEY CREATED

LOTS OF LOCAL PRESSURE, AND

THEY HAD SOME RESULT.

AND CRIMEA WAS ANNEXED

WITHIN A COUPLE OF WEEKS.

THAT IS THE SAME STRATEGY

AND THE SAME TACTICS THAT IS

USED IN EASTERN UKRAINIAN

REGION, AND THEY'RE

EXPANDING NOW FURTHER TO

KIRSTAN.

AND THEY CALL THE SOLDIERS

LITTLE GREEN MEN.

WELL-TRAINED, WELL-EQUIPPED,

ARMED, SO THEY'RE TAKING

OVER THESE BUILDINGS.

AND THEN INVITE LOCAL

SEPARATISTS TO MIX WITH

THEM, AND THEN THEY DEMAND

THAT THE UKRAINIAN

GOVERNMENT TO GIVE INTO

THEIR IDEAS AND DEMANDS OF

EASTERN UKRAINIAN REGIONS TO

SEPARATE ITSELF FROM THE

MAINLAND OF UKRAINE.

George: LET'S TALK

ABOUT THE SITUATION IN

CRIMEA.

AS YOU KNOW, THERE ARE CLOSE

TO ABOUT 250,000 REFUGEES,

MAINLY MUSLIM TATARS.

YOU ARE REPORTING THERE ARE

THOUSANDS THAT ARE FLEEING

CRIMEA.

CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT THAT?

THERE WERE SOME CATHOLICS

AND ORTHODOX LEADERING THAT

FLEEING THEMSELVES FROM

CRIMEA TODAY.

AND CATHOLIC LEADERS AND

CATHOLIC PRIESTS.

THEY SAY THEY CANNOT STAY

THERE BECAUSE THEY RECEIVED

MULTIPLE THREATS OF THEIR

LIVES AND THEIR FAMILIES.

George: SERGEI, FROM

THE RUSSIAN MINISTRIES,

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR

TIME.

Wendy: TODAY MARKS THE

ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF THE

BOSTON MARATHON BOMBINGS.

THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE ARE

COMING TOGETHER TO HONOR

VICTIMS OF THE ATTACK.

VICE PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN

TOOK PART IN A CEREMONY, AND

FROM THE WHITE HOUSE,

PRESIDENT OBAMA OBSERVED A

MOMENT OF SILENCE AT 2:

2:49 p.m., THE EXACT TIME

THE FIRST TWO BOMBS EXPLODED

AT THE MARATHON'S FINISHING

LINE.

SOME STAYED HOME TO MARK IT

PRIVATELY, BUT OTHERS JOINED

THE CEREMONY TO REMIND THE

THE WORLD THEY ARE BOSTON

STRONG.

NEXT MONDAY, ON PATRIOTS'

DAY, WHEN THE 36,000 PEOPLE

LINE UP TO START THE

MARATHON, YOU WILL SEND A

RESOUNDING MESSAGE AROUND

THE WORLD, NOT JUST TO THE

REST OF THE WORLD BUT TO THE

TERRORISTS, THAT WE WILL

NEVER YIELD.

WE WILL NEVER COWER.

Wendy: THREE PEOPLE

DIED AND MORE THAN 260 WERE

WOUNDED IN THAT ATTACK.

AND STILL TO COME ON

"NEWSWATCH," CBN NEWS HEADS

TO BOSTON FOR A LOOK AT HOW

FAITH IS LEADING TO

FORGIVENESS IN THAT CITY.

George: BY 2016, THE

U.S. MILITARY MUST OPEN ALL

COMBAT POSITIONS TO WOMEN.

THE MOVE WILL GIVE FEMALES

THE OPPORTUNITY TO SERVE ON

THE FRONT LINES FOR THE VERY

FIRST TIME.

BUT IT SEEMS NOT MANY WOMEN

WANT THE JOB.

THE MOST RECENT ARMY SURVEY

FINDS THAT ONLY ABOUT 20% OF

FEMALE SERVICE MEMBERS WOULD

CHOOSE TO SERVE IN A COMBAT

ROLE.

ACCORDING TO THE DEFENSE

DEPARTMENT, WOMEN MAKE UP

ABOUT 15% OF THE COUNTRY'S

MILITARY.

THERE ARE SOME WOMEN,

HOWEVER, WHO ARE STEPPING UP

TO SERVE ON THE FRONT LINES,

HOPING TO SEE MILITARY

CULTURE CHANGE.

Wendy: AS CAITLIN BURKE

REPORTS, THESE WOMEN ARE

PROVING TO BE TOP PERFORMERS

AND LEADERS.

Reporter: AT FT. BRAGG,

NORTH CAROLINA, FIRST

LIEUTENANT KELLY RICKA IS

MAKING HISTORY.

I THINK IT IS A GOOD

JOB.

Reporter: SHE IS AMONG

THE FIRST FEMALE PLATOON

LEADERS.

WE'RE A UNIT THAT LIKES

TO PRIDE OURSELVES ON

EMBRACING DIVERSITY.

THERE WAS NO DISCUSSION AT

ALL.

Reporter: AHEAD OF A

2016 DEADLINE FOR ALL COMBAT

JOBS TO BE OPEN FOR WOMEN,

SCIENTISTS ARE STUDYING THE

THE PHYSICAL DEMANDS OF

BEING ON THE FRONT LINE.

MEASURING STRENGTH,

ENDURANCE, POWER, BENCHMARKS

REGARDLESS OF GENDER.

WE WANT THE BEST TALENT

WE CAN POSSIBLY GET.

THESE ARE EXACTLY THE SAME

STANDARDS WE EXPECT SOLDIERS

IN BASIC TRAINING AND IN

UNITS TO PERFORM TO EACH AND

EVERY DAY.

Reporter: RICKA

WELCOMES THE CHALLENGE.

SHE SAYS EVEN THOUGH THE

GUYS IN HER PLATOON OR

STRONGER, IN PHYSICAL

TRAINING, SHE CAN KEEP UP,

NO PROBLEM.

ANYBODY CAN BE A PLATOON

MEMBER AND A CREW MEMBER, AS

LONG AS YOU CAN DO THE JOB.

Reporter: FOR NOW SHE

IS THE ONLY WOMAN IN HER

UNIT.

BUT LATER THIS SPRING, MORE

WOMEN WILL BE IN THE CREW.

THEIR JOB, POSITION THE

CANNONS AND FIRE THE

ROUNDS.

FOR MEN, IT MEANS A NEW

FOCUS ON RESPECT,

TEAM-BUILDING, AND SEXUAL

ASSAULT PREVENTION.

SO FAR RICKA SAYS THERE

HAVEN'T BEEN ANY PROBLEMS.

AND MORE OFTEN THAN NOT, IT

SEEMS THE MEN IN HER PLATOON

FORGET SHE IS THE ONLY WOMAN

ON THE FIELD.

CAITLIN BURKE, CBN NEWS.

Wendy: THE TOP DEMOCRAT

ON THE PANEL INVESTIGATING

THE I.R.S. TARGETING SCANDAL

IS BEING ACCUSED OF POSSIBLY

PLAYING A ROLE.

CONGRESSMANOW A HOUSE

OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE DARRELL

ISSA IS RELEASING EVIDENCE

AGAINST CUMMINGS.

HE MAY HAVE COORDINATED WITH

THE I.R.S. TO GO AFTER A

CONSERVATIVE GROUP CALLED

"TRUTH OF OATH."

IT IS ONE OF THE SAME GROUPS

TARGETED BY LOIS LERNER'S

I.R.S. DIVISION.

George: TURNING

OVERSEAS, NO ONE IS CLAIMING

RESPONSIBILITY FOR MONDAY'S

MASSIVE BOMBING THAT KILLED

MORE THAN 70 PEOPLE IN

NIGERIA'S CAPITAL.

THE COUNTRY'S PRESIDENT SAYS

ALL EVIDENCE SUGGESTS THAT

THE WORK WAS OF THE

TERRORIST GROUP, BOKO

HARAM.

GARY LANE HAS MORE.

Reporter: MONDAY

MORNING'S BOMBINGS WAS THE

DEADLIEST EVER TO HIT

ABUSHA.

KILLING AT LEAST 72 PEOPLE,

AND INJURING 169 OTHERS.

THIS MAN WITNESSED THE

BOMBING AND SAID HE

INITIALLY THOUGHT A FUEL

TANKER HAD EXPLODED.

NIGERIAN VICTOR ALOTACUM WAS

IN ABUSHA AT THE TIME OF THE

ATTACK.

AND H HE SAYS A SOMBER MOOD

IS IN THE CAPITAL CITY

BECAUSE NO ATTACK HAS

OCCURRED THERE FOR THE PAST

FOUR YEARS.

THERE IS A SENSE THAT

ABUSHA IS SECURE.

AND THAT HOPE HAS BEEN

SHATTERED RIGHT NOW.

Reporter: SOME PEOPLE

SPECULATE THAT THE BOMB WAS

HIDDEN IN THE GROUND.

THAT'S BECAUSE THE BLAST

LEFT THIS CRATER MORE THAN

FOUR FEET DEEP, AND SLICED

INTO THE FLESH OF NEARBY

COMMUTERS.

BUT GOVERNMENT INVESTIGATORS

INSIST A SUICIDE CAR BOMBER

CAUSED THE DEADLY

EXPLOSION.

THIS MAN SAYS MOST NIGERIANS

BELIEVE THE ATTACK WAS THE

WORK OF BOKO HARAM

TERRORISTS.

WHAT IS A LITTLE

CONFUSING FOR THE NIGERIANS

AT THIS MOMENT IS THERE IS

NO RHYME OR REASON FOR THE

ATTACKS.

Reporter: AND THIS

INDICATES THAT BOKO HARAM'S

TERRORISM MAY BE ENTERING A

NEW PHASE, WHERE PUBLIC

BUILDINGS ARE TARGETED, IN

ADDITION TO CHURCHES AND

SCHOOLS.

WE NEED TO PRAY THAT

PEACE WILL REIGN, AND THE

ATTACKERS WILL BE EXPOSED

AND APPREHENDED, AND THAT

SANITY AND PEACE BE RESTORED

IN NIGERIA.

Reporter: GARY LANE,

CBN NEWS.

Wendy: THANKS, GARY.

COMING UP, AN ARCHEOLOGICAL

DISCOVERY INVOLVING THE

LOCATION OF JESUS' TRIAL

BEFORE HIS DEATH.

Wendy: A LUNAR ECLIPSE

CALLED THE BLOOD MOON

MEMORIZED MILLIONS

OVERNIGHT.

THE MOON CROSSED THROUGH

EARTH'S SHADOW, AND TOOK ON

A REDDISH HUE BETWEEN 2:00

AND 4:00 THIS MORNING.

THERE WILL BE THREE MORE OF

THESE ECLIPSES BEFORE

OCTOBER 2015.

ACCORDING TO NASA, SEEING

FOUR LUNAR ECLIPSES IN A ROW

IS RARE.

SOME BIBLICAL EXPERTS HAVE

ATTRIBUTED SPECIAL

SIGNIFICANCE TO THEM SINCE

THEY COINCIDED WITH

PASSOVER.

YOAND YOU CAN FIND MORE AT

CBNNEWS.COM.

George: THE EXACT

LOCATION OF WHERE JESUS WAS

SENTENCED TO DEATH HAS BEEN

MADE A MYSTERY FOR 2000

YEARS.

BUT A RECENT ARCHEOLOGICAL

DISCOVERY IN JERUSALEM IS

CAUSING SOME CHRISTIANS TO

QUESTION THEIR LONG-HELD

THEORIES.

GARY LANE HAS MORE.

Reporter: EACH YEAR

THOUSANDS OF CHRISTIAN

PILGRIMS FROM AROUND THE

WORLD JOURNEY TO JERUSALEM

FOR HOLY WEEK.

THEY WALK DOWN THE ROUTE

THAT JESUS WALKED ON HIS WAY

TO HIS CRUCIFIXION.

NEAR MT. ZION, THEY CAN

REVIEW A REMARKABLE

ARCHEOLOGICAL FIND.

THEY REVEALED SOMETHING

MASSIVE, BENEATH THE PRISON

WERE THE REMAINING WALLS OF

THE PALACE.

THIS MAN IS A AN

ARCHEOLOGIST.

THE FINDS IN THE

EXCAVATION POINTS THAT THIS

GROUND IS THE ACTUALLY

PALACE OF HEROD THE GREAT.

WE HAVE THE RETAINING

WALLS.

IT WAS A MASSIVE ENGINEERING

PROJECT, AND WE SEE IT IN

THE EXCAVATION.

WE EVEN FOUND AN ENORMOUS

UNDERGROUND SEWAGE THAT

COULD ONLY BELONG TO THE

PALACE OF HEROD.

Reporter: IF IT IS

HEROD'S PALACE, COULD IT

ALSO BE THE SPOT WHERE JESUS

WAS TRIED?

SOME HISTORIANS BELIEVE

JESUS' TRIAL WAS IN HEROD'S

PALACE.

THE BIBLE SAYS JESUS

APPEARED BEFORE PO PONTIUS

PILOT.

FATHER EUGENEO ALIOTTA SAYS

IT IS POSSIBLE THAT THE

PALACE WAS THERE.

BUT THE EVIDENCE MUST BE

MORE COMPELLING IF THE

CATHOLIC CHURCH IS TO

BELIEVE THAT THE TRIAL WAS

HELD AT THE FORTRESS.

THIS IS THE LAST

INFORMATION WE RECEIVE.

IT IS NECESSARY TO HAVE A

VERY STRONG ARGUMENT IN

ORDER FOR THE TRADITION TO

GO BACK TO THAT.

Reporter: WHILE THE

HEROD PALACE DISCOVERY MAY

CHANGE SOME VIEWS OF THE

ACTUAL LOCATION OF JESUS'

TRIAL, STILL UNCHANGED IS

THE REASON FOR HIS

CONVICTION, CRUCIFIXION, AND

RESURRECTION.

GARY LANE, CBN NEWS.

Wendy: UP NEXT, ONE

YEAR LATER.

WE VISIT BOSTON TO SEE HOW

PEOPLE ARE MOVING FORWARD

FROM THE MARATHON BOMBING.

George: TODAY MARKS THE

ANNIVERSARY OF THE BOSTON

MARATHON BOMBINGS.

Wendy: AND WHILE IT WAS

A TRAGIC DAY FOR THE CITY

AND THE COUNTRY, MANY ARE

RELYING ON THEIR FAITH TO

HELP THEM MOVE ON.

George: TOM BURING

BRINGS US THIS STORY OF

FORGIVENESS IN TONIGHT'S

FOCUS REPORT.

Reporter: WHEN BOSTON'S

MARATHON BEGAN IN

HOPKINGTON, RUNNERS WERE ON

THEIR MARK.

BUT THEY WOULD SOON ACHIEVE

A GREAT DISTANCE THAT WOULD

FEEL AS DEEP AS IT RAN

LONG.

THE DAY STARTED WITH A

TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF

ANTICIPATION AND

EXCITEMENT.

YOU'VE BEEN TRAINING FOR SIX

MONTHS, SIX DAYS A WEEK.

WE WENT OUT TO THE SITE

AND STARTED RUNNING THE

RACE.

IT WAS A BEAUTIFUL DAY.

IT WAS A GORGEOUS DAY.

AND EVERYBODY WAS IN GREAT

SPIRITS.

Reporter: DOWN THE

ROAD, FENWAY PARK WAS

PACKED.

A PLAYER HIT A HOMERUN, AND

THE RED SOCKS RALLY FOR

RALLIED.

ROB DAVIS HAD JUST FINISHED

THE 26-MILE RACE.

HE WAS EXHAUSTED.

HE TOWELLED OFF AND WAITED

TO CHEER ON A FRIEND NEAR

THE FINISH LINE.

AFTER HEARING THE FIRST

BLAST, HE WAS CAUGHT 20 FEET

FROM THE SECOND EXPLOSION.

THE BOMB WENT OFF RIGHT

IN FRONT OF US.

PEOPLE ARE SCREAMING.

AND WE'VE GONE FROM A

BEAUTIFUL DAY IN BOSTON TO A

WAR ZONE INSTANTANEOUSLY.

AND I'M LOOKING JUST ACROSS

THE STREET AT A GUY, SITTING

IN HIS CHAIR WITH HIS LEGS

BLOWN OFF.

I LOOKED DOWN AT MY FEET,

AND THE BONE OF HIS LEG ARE

AT MY FEET.

AT THE SAME TIME, THERE IS A

GIRL ON FIRE, AND SHE IS

RUNNING TOWARDS ME AND A

POLICE OFFICER GRABS HER AND

STARTS PATTING DOWN HER

HAIR.

THIS GIRL IS SHELL-SHOCKED,

FREEZING, NAKED ON BOYLESTON

STREET.

I START SHAKING.

I'M SHAKING AGAIN.

YOU JUST GO BACK INTO THIS

AND YOU'VE GOT THE SMELL OF

THE GUN POWDER.

YOU'VE GOT BLOOD

EVERYWHERE.

YOU'VE GOT PEOPLE SCREAMING

HYSTERICALLY.

AND I'M LOOKING AT THIS, AND

I'M THINKING, GOD, HOW AM I

GOING TO GET TO THE POINT

WHERE I CAN FORGIVE?

Reporter: IT IS A

QUESTION THAT STILL LINGERS,

CHALLENGING MANY, INCLUDING

SOME OF THOSE WHO VISITED

THE RECENTLY RESTORED

SIDEWALK ALONG THE BOYLESTON

BOMBING SITE.

THE THEME OF THE MARATHON

QUICKLY CHANGED, CATCHING

ALL OF US FLAT-FOOTED.

IT MOVED TO A MUCH DIFFERENT

RACE, ONE WITH HURTLES OF

FEAR AND FORGIVENESS.

THIS SERGEANT WAS FIVE MILES

FROM THE BOTTOM OF

HEARTBREAK HILL.

THAT'S AS FAR AS HE GOT.

POLICE STOPPED HIM.

AS A PASTOR AND COUNSELLOR,

HE IS ENCOURAGING THOSE WHO

CAN'T SEE PAST INJUSTICE.

WHAT I SHARE WITH PEOPLE

THAT IS A BAD PLACE TO

REMAIN.

RESENTMENT AND BITTERNESS

BECOMES A PLACE OF COMFORT.

IT BAME BECOMES A PLACE

WHERE WE LIKE TO STAY, AND

WE CANNOT ESCAPE.

Reporter: AMERICA'S

MOST BELOVED BALLPARK BECAME

A SANCTUARY OF SUPPORT AND

FAITH, AS THE RED SOCKS

BRANDED THE CALL.

JARED'S NAME PROVIDES HIM

WITH A REMINDER.

IT MEANS TO JUMP OVER A

THICKET.

CONSTANTLY WHAT WE'RE DOING

IS JUMPING OVER SOMETHING.

WE ALL COME TO A GAP IN OUR

LIVES WE NEED TO GET OVER.

FOR ME, THAT'S BEEN A BIG

THING.

WHERE I DON'T WANT TO CUT MY

CHRISTIANITY SHORT, I DON'T

WANT TO CUT MY RELATIONSHIP

WITH GOD SHORT AND CUT

CORNERS.

I WANT TO BE ALL IN.

TO BE ALL IN FOR HIM.

AND THEN I WON'T EVER HAVE

TO WORRY ABOUT THAT GAP IN

THE ROAD.

I'LL ALWAYS HAVE HIM TO HELP

ME GET OVER IT.

THIS IS WHY I BELIEVE OUR

FAITH IS SO ESSENTIAL.

IF WE LOOK AT JESUS, THERE

HAS BEEN NO ONE WRONGED

LIKED HIM IN THE SAME WAY,

AND HE LOOKS DOWN AT THOSE

WHO HURT HIM AND HE WAS ABLE

TO LET GO.

HIS EXAMPLE HELPS US AND

GUIDES US THROUGH THE MINE

FIELDS OF EMOTIONS WE GO

THROUGH.

HAS YOUR CHRISTIANITY

BEEN TESTED?

100%.

THERE IS SO MUCH EMOTIONS

BUILT UP THROUGH THIS WHOLE

ORDEAL.

YOU THINK ABOUT MORE THAN

JUST YOURSELF, AND STOP

BEING SELFISH FOR THAT

MOMENT, AND WHAT IT TRULY

MEANS TO BE A CHRISTIAN.

THAT'S WHAT EVERYBODY SEES.

WHEN EVIL COMES AT US,

OUR RESPONSE, THE POWER IN

OUR LIVES, COMES BY BEING

ABLE TO REPAY THAT EVIL AND

REALLY UNDO THAT EVIL WITH

BLESSING, WITH COURAGE.

AND THAT'S WHERE I THINK WE

CAN OVERCOME THE FEAR.

AND THAT'S WHERE I BELIEVE

WE CAN OVERCOME BITTERNESS.

Reporter: HOW DO YOU

PROCESS RELEASING

FORGIVENESS?

GOING TO THESE HOSPITALS

AND SEEING -- I TALKED TO A

GENTLEMAN WHO WAS THERE WITH

HIS 4-YEAR-OLD SON, AND

THAT'S WHEN THE SECOND BOMB

WENT OFF.

THAT'S WHEN HE REALIZED HIS

LEG THAT BEEN BLOWN OFF,

BASICALLY.

AND THE FIRST THING HE DID

WAS GRAB HIS SON AND JUST

PROTECT HIM.

AND THEN HE CALLED AN

OFFICER OVER AND TOLD THE

OFFICER, JUST TAKE MY SON

AND PROTECT HIM.

KEEP HIM SAFE.

PUT HIM WHEREVER YOU'VE GOT

TO PUT HIM.

AND I LOOK AT THAT, AND I

SAY, THAT'S WHAT JESUS DOES

TO US.

George: UP NEXT, HOW A

TINY CAMERA IS WORKING TO

TEACH PEOPLE THE REALITY OF

HOMELESS LIFE.
