On CBN Newswatch, July 14: Senate unveils health care bill: Trump 'very angry' if not approved; Hawaii forcing faith-based pregnancy centers to send women for abortions, and more. Read Transcript


Efrem: THANK YOU SO

MUCH FOR JOINING US FOR

CBN "NEWSWATCH."

I'M EFREM GRAHAM.

REPUBLICANS HAVE UNVEIL A

HEALTH CARE BILL IN THE

UNITED STATES SENATE.

AND PRESIDENT TRUMP SAYS

HE IS WAITING WITH PEN IN

HAND TO SIGN THE BILL INTO

LAW.

WHAT CHANGES HAVE BEEN

MADE, AND WILL THEY BE

ENOUGH TO GAIN SENATE

APPROVAL.

GARY LANE IS TRYING TO

ANSWER THAT QUESTION.

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: SOME KEY

REPUBLICANS REJECTED THE

ORIGINAL SENATE BILL,

MEANING IT WOULD NOT GAIN

APPROVAL WITHOUT

REVISIONS.

SO IT WAS BACK TO THE

DRAWING BOARD WITH A NEW

HEALTH CARE PLAN.

THE REVISED SENATE BILL

NOW PROVIDES BILLIONS OF

DOLLARS IN GOVERNMENT

SUBSIDIES TO TACKLE THE

NATIONAL OPIOID EPIDEMIC.

AND IT HAS CHEAPER PLANS.

IT REDUCES PAYING FOR

SERVICES THEY DON'T NEED,

LIKE PREGNANT EXPENSES FOR

SENIOR CITIZENS.

THAT CHANGE ALONE COULD

BRING DOWN COSTS FOR SOME

AMERICANS.

THE MEASURE WAS PUSHED BY

TED CRUZ, AND SO WILL HE

NOW SUPPORT THE BILL?

YES.

Reporter: AND

MITCHELL McCONNELL SAYS

HE EXPECTS A VOTE ON THE

NEW HEALTH CARE BILL NEXT

WEEK.

BUT NOT ONE DEMOCRAT IS

EXPECTED TO CAST A VOTE IN

FAVOR OF IT.

THE MEAT OF THIS BILL

IS EXACTLY THE SAME AS IT

WAS BEFORE.

AND THEY HAVE SOMEHOW

MANAGED TO MAKE IT EVEN

WORSE.

Reporter: THE SUPPORT

OF PEOPLE LIKE SUSAN

COLLINS WILL BE ESSENTIAL

IF THE REPUBLICANS ARE TO

GET THE VOTES NEEDED TO

PASS THE BILL.

BUT SHE IS SLATED TO VOTE

AGAINST IT.

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT THE

HEALTH INFRASTRUCTURE IN

RURAL AMERICA.

Reporter: PRESIDENT

TRUMP IN HIS "THE 700

CLUB" INTERVIEW WITH PAT

ROBERTSON, MADE IT CLEAR

HE WILL BE UPSET IF IT

ISN'T PASSED.

President Trump: THEY

HAVE TO GET TOGETHER AND

GET IT DONE.

Pat: WHAT WILL HAPPEN

IF THEY DON'T?

President Trump: I

DON'T EVEN WANT TO TALK

ABOUT IT.

I WILL BE VERY ANGRY ABOUT

IT.

A LOT OF PEOPLE WILL BE

UPSET.

I AM SITTING, WAITING FOR

THAT BILL TO COME TO MY

DESK.

THEY HAVE BEEN PROMISING

IT EVER SINCE OBAMACARE,

WHICH HAS FAILED.

Reporter: EVEN

VICE-PRESIDENT PENCE

WEIGHED IN.

WE URGE EVERY MEMBER OF

THE UNITED STATES SENATE

TO ROLL THEIR SLEEVES UP

AND GET THIS BILL TO THE

PRESIDENT'S DESK AND GET

IT THERE SOON.

Efrem: A FEDERAL

JUDGE IN HAWAII IS

WEAKENING TRUMP'S TRAVEL

BAN.

PEOPLE COMING FROM SUDAN,

SOMALIA, LIBYA AND YEMEN

WERE REQUIRED TO HAVE

IMMEDIATE FAMILY MEMBERS

LIVING IN THE UNITED

STATES.

NOW THAT LIFT HAS BEEN

BROADENED TO INCLUDE

GRANDPARENTS,

GRANDCHILDREN, AUNTS, AND

UNCLES.

> FAITH-BASED PREGNANCY

CENTERS ARE FIGHTING A NEW

LAW.

THEY ARE TCENTERS THAT REFUSE COULD

FACE FINES UP TO $5,000.

THEY FILED A LAWSUIT OVER

THE NEW LAW WHICH COULD GO

ALL THE WAY TO THE U.S.

SUPREME COURT.

ILLINOIS PASSED A SIMILAR

LAW EARLIER THIS YEAR.

AND CALIFORNIA HAS HAD ONE

ON THEIR BOOKS SINCE 2015.

> THE ISRAELI-ARAB

TERRORISTS MURDERED TWO

POLICEMEN DURING A TERROR

ATTACK IN JERUSALEM'S OLD

CITY EARLY FRIDAY MORNING.

AFTER THE ATTACK, A POLICE

UNIT CHASED THE TERRORISTS

AND KILLED THEM DURING A

SHOOTOUT ON THE TEMPLE

MOUNT.

THREE ATTACKERS CAME FROM

AN ARAB TOWN IN NORTHERN

ISRAEL.

THE ISRAELI PRESIDENT

WEIGHED IN ON THE ATTACK,

SAYING WE CANNOT ALLOW FOR

AGENTS OF MURDER WHO

DESECRATE THE NAME OF GOD

TO DRAG US INTO A BLOODY

WAR.

HE ADDED, IT IS TIME FOR

THE ARAB LEADERSHIP IN

ISRAEL, AND EVEN OUTSIDE

OF IT, TO EXPRESS A CLEAR

POSITION AGAINST THIS

CRIMINAL ATTACK.

THIS WEEK THE SENATE

CAME ONE STEP CLOSER TO

PASSING LEGISLATION THAT

DEFUNDS THE PALESTINIAN

GOVERNMENT UNTIL IT STOPS

MARTYR PAYMENTS.

ABIGAIL ROBERTSON HAS MORE

ON THIS STORY.

Reporter: IT IS BAD

ENOUGH FOR A PARENT TO

HEAR ABOUT THE DEATH OF A

CHILD.

IT IS EVEN WORSE TO LEARN

THE PERSON WHO KILLED HIM

WAS PRAISED AND REWARDED

BY A GOVERNMENT LARGELY

FUNDED BY U.S. TAXPAYER

DOLLARS.

THAT HAPPENED TO THE

PARENTS OF AMERICAN

STUDENT TAYLOR FORCE, WHEN

A 21-YEAR-OLD PALESTINIAN

MAN MURDERED TAYLOR WHILE

HE WAS VISITING ISRAEL.

NO SOCIETY SHOULD

REWARD THEIR CHILDREN FOR

BEING TERRORISTS.

Reporter: U.S.

SENATOR LINDSEY GRAHAM

HOPES TO PRESSURE THE

PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY TO

STOP THEIR MARTYR PAYMENT

PROGRAM, BY PR PROPOSING A

BILL THAT WOULD CUT ALMOST

$400 MILLION OF U.S.

FUNDING TO THE GROUP.

GRAHAM THINKS THERE IS NO

HOPE FOR A TWO-STATE

SOLUTION IN THE MIDDLE

EAST IF THE PALESTINIAN

AUTHORITY CONTINUES TO

REWARD PEOPLE FOR BEING

TERRORISTS.

ACCORDING TO THE JERUSALEM

POST, THE P.A. ARGUES THE

BONUSES ONLY BENEFIT

LEGITIMATE COMBATANTS, BUT

THE ISRAELI AND U.S.

GOVERNMENTS SAY THIS IS

IMMORAL.

THE BOSS SAID, ABOUT

THE PALESTINIAN STORY, I

WILL LEAVE OFFICE BEFORE I

STOP MARTYR PAYMENTS AND

BEFORE I STOP PAYING MONEY

TO PRISONERS.

HOW DO YOU DO PEACE WITH A

GOVERNMENT WHO WOULD PAY

MONEY AND PAY CHILDREN TO

KILL OTHER PEOPLE'S

CHILDREN?

Reporter: THEY AGREE

THIS NEEDS TO END, BUT

WORRY ABOUT UNINTENDED

CONSEQUENCES TO ISRAEL'S

SECURITY IF ALL FUNDING IS

CUT OFF.

MANY WANT TO SEE CHANGES

ADDED TO ENSURE

HUMANITARIAN AID IS NOT

AFFECTED, AND THAT THIS

WOULD NOT LEAD TO THE

COLLAPSE OF THE P.A.

WE'RE GOING TO KEEP

THAT AID FLOWING WITH ONE

CONDITION: THE SECRETARY

OF STATE HAS TO CERTIFY

THAT THE PALESTINIAN

GOVERNMENT IS CHANGING

THEIR BEHAVIOR.

IF THEY CAN'T DO THAT,

WE'LL CUT THAT MONEY OFF.

Reporter: GRAHAM SAYS

HE IS CONFIDENT AFTER

REVISIONS ARE MADE TO THE

BILL, THE SENATE WILL SEE

A VOTE ON IT THIS YEAR

WITH OVERWHELMING SUPPORT.

REPORTING FROM CAPITOL

HILL, ABIGAIL ROBERTSON.

Efrem: THE BRITISH

HOSPITAL TREATING CHARLIE

GARD SAYS HIS PARENTS DO

NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE

THE SOLE DECISION-MAKERS

FOR THEIR SON'S FATE.

HOSPITAL ATTORNEY KATIE

GALLOP SAYS THE HOSPITAL

HOLDS A VERY DIFFERENT

VIEW ON TREATMENT

DECISIONS.

GARD'S PARENTS HAD ANOTHER

BREAK DOWN IN COURT AFTER

THE JUDGE INSISTED THERE

MUST BE, QUOTE, "NEW AND

POWERFUL EVIDENCE THAT THE

BABY IS NOT SUFFERING."

HE HAS RULED THE PARENTS

MAY NOT TRAVEL ELSEWHERE

FOR TREATMENT FOR THEIR

SON, AND HAS AUTHORIZED

THE HOSPITAL TO TAKE THE

BABY OFF OF LIFE SUPPORT.

> AHEAD HERE ON CBN

"NEWSWATCH," IT IS A

REAL-LIFE FAIRYTALE

ROMANCE STORY, BUT IT HAS

TAKEN NEARLY 50 YEARS FOR

ONE WOMAN TO FIND TRUE

LOVE.

HEAR HER STORY, WHE WHEN WE

Efrem: SUMMER IS THE

TIME FOR WEDDINGS IN

AMERICA.

AND IT IS TIME WHEN

COUPLES EXCHANGE VOWS AND

COMMIT THEIR LIVES TO EACH

OTHER.

AND ONE FLORIDA WOMAN SAYS

SHE WAITED A LONG TIME TO

FIND THAT TRUE LOVE.

SO LONG, IN FACT, THE WAIT

CAME WITH HER 50th

BIRTHDAY IN SIGHT, AND SHE

BEGAN TO DOUBT THAT IT

WOULD EVER HAPPEN.

WENDY GRIFFITH BRINGS US

HER STORY FROM THE SUN

SHINE STATE.

Wendy: SHE GREW UP

PLAYING ON THE WHITE SANDY

BEACHES NEAR PENSACOLA,

FLORIDA.

THE DAUGHTER OF A PASTOR,

SHERRY HAD FAITH THAT ONE

DAY HER PRINCE WOULD COME.

AS I GOT INTO MY 20s

AND FRIEND AFTER FRIEND

AFTER FRIEND, THEY WERE

ALL GETTING MARRIED, AND

MY HEART WOULD JUST SINK

BECAUSE I REALLY DIDN'T

DATE THAT MUCH.

BUT, STILL, TIME IS

PASSING AND YOU BEGIN TO

FEEL LIKE GOD IS PASSING

YOU BY.

Wendy: SHE BELIEVED

THAT GOD HAD PROMISED HER

SHE WOULD BE MARRIED, SO

SHE CONTINUED TO HOPE AND

TO DATE.

BUT TIME AFTER TIME, THE

RELATIONSHIPS WOULD

FIZZLE.

AND I WOULD JUST PRAY,

GOD, PLEASE DON'T LET ME

BE DESPERATE.

PLEASE DON'T LET ME BE

DESPERATE.

AND SO I JUST KEPT WAITING

AND SEEKING GOD.

THERE IS A VERSE IN ISAIAH

THAT TALKS ABOUT, NO MORE

WILL BE TERMED FORSAKEN.

AND I WOULD CLING TO

VERSES LIKE THAT.

Wendy: BY NOW, SHE

WAS IN HER LATE 40s WITH

NO PROSPECTS IN SIGHT.

WHEN SOME FRIENDS INVITED

HER TO A WEDDING, AND TO

MEET A SURFER NAMED BEN.

RIGHT IN THE LOBBY, ALL

BY HIMSELF, IS THIS

GORGEOUS MAN IN A TUXEDO,

JUST STANDING THERE.

SURELY THIS HAS TO BE HIM.

I'M, LIKE, HELLO, AND I

RAN IN AND FOUND HER AND I

SAID, PLEASE TELL ME

THAT'S HIM.

AND SHE WAS, LIKE, IT IS.

Wendy: THE NEXT DAY

THEY SAW EACH OTHER IN

CHURCH.

AND I SAW THIS GORGEOUS

GUY AT THE CHURCH.

Wendy: WAS IT LOVE AT

FIRST SIGHT?

I WAS DEFINITELY

ATTRACTED TO SHERRY.

BUT I GUESS WHAT SHE IS

TRYING TO SAY IS I WAS

STILL KIND OF TORN WHERE I

WAS.

Wendy: WHAT SHERRY

DIDN'T KNOW, BEN HAD GONE

THROUGH A PAINFUL DIVORCE

AND WAS STILL HURTING.

WHAT BEN, A SURFER AND

LOVER OF THE OCEAN DIDN'T

KNOW, WAS THAT SHERRY WAS

AFRAID OF THE WATER.

I LIKE TO TAN, AND HE

LIKES TO SURF.

IT WORKS.

Wendy: BUT IT WASN'T

ALL SMOOTH SAILING, AND

THE TWO BROKE UP FOR

SEVERAL MONTHS.

I COME FROM A DIVORCED

FAMILY.

AND I NEVER WANTED THAT TO

BE A PART OF MY LIFE.

SO I REALLY HAD TO LET GO

OF THEIR EVER BEING HOPE

OF RESTORATION OF THE

FIRST MARRIAGE.

AND I SAID, LOOK, IT

HAS TO BE ME AND NO ONE

ELSE.

I CAN'T PLAY SECOND

FIDDLE.

I HAVE TO KNOW I HAVE YOUR

WHOLE HEART.

AND HE SAID, YOU'RE THE

ONE, YOU'RE THE ONE I WANT

TO BE WITH.

FOR SOMEONE TO FINALLY

SAY, I AM CHOOSING YOU, IT

WAS JUST, LIKE...

Wendy: THEN IN THE

SUMMER OF 2012, AFTER TWO

YEARS OF DATING ON AND

OFF, SHERRY WAS PREPARING

TO CELEBRATE HER 50th

BIRTHDAY.

WE HAD NOT LOOKED AT

RINGS OR TALKED ABOUT

MARRIAGE, NOTHING.

BUT I THOUGHT, IT'S A BIG

DAY, AND HE ASKED ME WHAT

I WANTED TO DO.

A WALK ON THE BEACH AT

SUNSET.

WE HAD NEVER DONE THAT AS

A COUPLE.

WE COME THROUGH THE DUNES,

AND THERE IS A WEDDING

TAKING PLACE ON THIS SIDE

OF THE BEACH AND THERE IS

A WEDDING TAKING PLACE ON

THE OTHER SIDE OF THE

BEACH.

AND HE LOOKED AT ME AND

SAID, DID YOU EVER THINK

ABOUT GETTING MARRIED ON

THE BEACH.

Wendy: IT WAS THERE,

ON THE BEACH, THAT BEN,

NINE YEARS YOUNGER, ASKED

HER TO SHARE HER LIFE WITH

HIM.

I ASKED HER IF SHE

WOULD LIKE TO SHARE HER

LIFE WITH ME, AND SHE SAID

YES.

Wendy: SHERRY SAID

THE AGE DIFFERENCE DIDN'T

SEEM TO MATTER.

THE LORD JUST EASED ALL

OF THAT AWAY.

Wendy: SHERRY AND BEN

WERE ENGAGED ON

JUNE 2nd, AND SET THE

WEDDING DATE FOR FIVE

MONTHS LATER.

NOVEMBER 3rd, 2012,

FINALLY ARRIVED.

IT WAS A BEAUTIFUL,

GORGEOUS DAY.

AND RIGHT AWAY IT WAS

THANK YOU, GOD.

WE RENTED A HOUSE ON

THE BEACH.

AND WE HAD OUR FAMILIES

COME OUT.

AND THE WEDDING TOOK

PLACE, LIKE, RIGHT OUT

FRONT.

Wendy: SHERRY SAYS

HER STORY IS PROOF THAT

WHEN GOD GIVES YOU A

PROMISE, HE IS FAITHFUL TO

FULFILL IT, EVEN IF IT

TAKES A WHILE.

ASK HIM TO GIVE YOU A

PROMISE ABOUT YOUR LIFE,

WHATEVER THAT IS, AND HOLD

ON TO THAT PROMISE BECAUSE

HE WILL BE FAITHFUL.

I WANTED SOMEONE TRUE,

AND GOD GAVE ME THE REAL

DEAL IN SHERRY.

LIKE I SAID, I KNOW MY

HEART IS SAFE WITH HER.

AGE IS JUST A NUMBER.

AND SHE IS BEAUTIFUL.

SHE IS GORGEOUS.

AND GOD IS GOOD.

HE WHO FINDS A WIFE FINDS

A GOOD THING.

Wendy: WENDY

GRIFFITH, CBN NEWS,

PENSACOLA, FLORIDA.

Efrem: UP NEXT, THE

WEEKEND IS ALMOST HERE.

STILL AHEAD, WE'VE GOT

YOUR FAMILY-FRIENDLY MOVIE

REVIEWS.

Efrem: SPIDERMAN

Efrem: SPIDERMAN

HOMECOMING HAS RAKED IN

MORE THAN $117 MILLION

SINCE ITS DEBUT LAST WEEK.

IT APPEARS TO BE A WINNER

WITH BOTH FANS AND MOVIE

CRITICS.

BUT SOME SAY PARTS OF THE

MOVIE ARE TROUBLING.

JOINING US NOW TO WEIGH IN

ON THIS IS TEDD TED BEAR.

DR. BEAR, WHAT IS IT YOUR

TEAM FOUND IN THE FILM

TROUBLING.

I SHOULD START UP WE

DON'T DO THUMBS UP OR

THUMBS DOWN.

THERE IS A LOT OF GOOD IN

THE MOVIE.

THERE ARE A LOT OF

PARALLELS IN THE TWO

MOVIES, ESPECIALLY WHERE

THE CHARACTER HAS A GOOD

CHARACTER ARK, BUT THE BAD

PARTS OF THE MOVIE IS IT

HAS MUCH MORE OF A SNARKY

STOOP TO CONQUER AND BAD

WORDS AND BAD WORDS OF

TAKING GOD'S NAME IN VAIN.

AND THE TEACHER COMES IN

AND CATCHES HIM AND SAYS,

WHAT ARE YOU DOING, AND HE

SAYS, I'M LOOKING AT

PORNOGRAPHY, WHICH FOR

YOUNG HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS

YOU DON'T WANT THEM TO DO.

I USED TO BE HEAD OF A

DEPARTMENT AT BERKELEY,

AND THERE IS A LOT OF

RESEARCH ON THE HARMS OF

PORNOGRAPHY, AND,

THEREFORE, JUST MAKING IT

NORMAL WITHIN "SPIDERMAN,"

AND USING SOME LANGUAGE

THAT MAKES ABHORRENT

BEHAVIOR NORMAL IS

DISTURBING.

THEY ARE TRYING TO STOOP

TO CONQUER, AND INSTEAD OF

TAKING THE HIGH ROAD, LIKE

THE FIRST FEW SPIDERMEN.

NOW IT IS WITH GREAT MONEY

AT THE BOX OFFICE, WE CAN

PUT IN MORE SNARKK SNARKY

MATERIAL.

Efrem: HOW WOULD YOU

ADVICE PARENTS TO TALK TO

THEIR CHILDREN ABOUT A

SCENE LIKE THE ONE YOU'RE

DESCRIBING?

EXACTLY THE WAY I SAID

IT, YOU'VE GOT TO TREAT

WOMEN AND MEN PROPERLY.

YOU HAVE TO REALIZE THAT

PEOPLE ARE NOT OBJECTS.

THERE IS MORE RESEARCH NOW

THAN EVER ON

THE iEFFECTS OF

ILL-EFFECTS OF

PORNOGRAPHY.

I TEACH A COURSE IN THAT.

YOU USED TO HAVE A COUPLE

HUNDRED THOUSAND STUDIES,

AND NOW YOU HAVE A MILLION

STUDIES.

AND MANY ARE DETAILED

BRAIN SCANS SHOWING THAT

PORN IS ALMOST AS

ADDICTIVE AS HARD-CORE

DRUGS LIKE HEROIN.

THAT MEANS IF HEROIN IS AT

2,000 ON THE RICHTER

SCALE, PORN COMES AT 1800,

AND COCAINE COMES AT 1100.

SO FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE A

PROPENSITY -- NOT

EVERYBODY HAS A

PROPENSITY.

IT IS ONLY ABOUT 34% OF

THE PEOPLE.

BUT PEOPLE HAVE A

PROPENSITY, AND USUALLY IT

IS A SMARTER, MORE

INTELLIGENT, CREATIVE

PEOPLE, AND IT'S NOT GOING

TO HELP THEM IN THEIR

LIVES, AND ESPECIALLY

INFORMING RELATIONSHIPS.

Efrem: DR. TED BEAR,

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR

INSIGHT.

IT IS MUCH APPRECIATED.

HAVE A GREAT DAY.

YOU, TOO.

Efrem: "PLUGGED IN"

HAS THE INSIDE SCOOP ON

"WAR OR THE PLANET OF THE

APES."

WE ARE NOT SAVAGES.

APES FIGHT ONLY TO

SURVIVE.

Reporter: IN THE

MOVIE "WAR FOR THE PLANET

OF THE APES," MOST OF

MANKIND IS GONE NOW THANKS

TO A DEADLY VIRUS.

THOSE WHO REMAIN ARE

FEELING A LITTLE STRESSED.

FOR WHILE THAT ENGINEERED

VIRUS HAS LEVELLED THE

WORLD OF MAN --

NATURE HAS BEEN

PUNISHING US.

Reporter: -- IT HAS

GIVEN AN I.Q. BOOST TO

GORILLAS AND PRIMATES.

THEY'RE CAPABLE OF RIDING

HORSES, SHOOTING GUNS, AND

CREATING CIVIL BEATIONIZATIONS OF

THEIR OWN.

THEIR LEADER IS A TRUE

HERO, A COMPLEX

INDIVIDUAL, BUT THE TRUTH

IS NO MATTER HOW CAESAR

APPLIES HIMSELF TO THE APE

VERSUS MANKIND, THINGS ARE

BOUND TO BECOME EXPLOSIVE.

FOR THE SURVIVING REMNANTS

OF HUMANITY ARE A

WELL-ARMED LOT, AND

THEY'RE ABOUT TO GIVE UP

THEIR PLANETARY PRIMACY

WITHOUT A FIGHT.

THE 1968 ORIGINAL MOVIE

FEATURING ACTOR CHARLESTON

HESTON, AND LIKE ITS

PREDECESSORS, THIS PICK

HAS MOMENTS OF WARMTH AND

SELF-SACRIFICE AND IT ASKS

QUESTIONS ABOUT WHAT IT

REALLY MEANS TO BE HUMAN.

BUT ADD IN SOME BAD

LANGUAGE, AND I'LL BE

GIVING THIS FLICK A THREE

OUT OF FIVE FOR

FAMILY-FRIENDLINESS.

THIS FILM OR ANYTHING ELSE

TODAY'S SHOW WITH SOME

UPLIFTING SHOW.

BUT THAT IS NOT EXACTLY

THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE

ABOUT THE SINGER.

CATCHI'S BODY IS COVERED

IN SCARS.

I WAS IN A PLANE CRASH

WHEN I WAS 16 YEARS OLD

BACK IN NIGERIA.

IT TOOK THE LIVES OF 107

OUT OF THE 109 PASSENGERS.

I WAS ONE OF THE TWO

SURVIVORS.

WOW.

Reporter: SHE HAS

UNDERGONE MORE THAN 100

SURGERIES, INCLUDING ONE

THAT RESTORED HER NOSE.

BUT WHILE THE PHYSICAL

SCARS REMAIN, THE

EMOTIONAL SCARS ARE

BECOMING A DISTANT MEMORY.

SHE BRINGS GLORY TO GOD

FOR BRINGING HER THIS FAR.

* PEOPLE FALL IN LOVE IN

MYSTERIOUS WAYS *

Reporter: THERE IS

THIS UNFORGETTABLE

PERFORMANCE ON "AMERICA'S

GOT TALENT."

* ME, I FALL IN LOVE WITH

YOU EVERY SINGLE DAY *

AM *
