Description

CBS News 60 Minutes reports that "Amy Biehl went to South Africa to study and write about women in emerging democracies and to realize a life-long dream of working to build a free South Africa.

To cope with her death, (her parents) did not seek vengeance, justice or therapy.... The Biehls now spend more than half their time in South Africa, and in the five years since Amy's death, they've met their daughter's killers who have been released from prison and forgiven them. And they've picked up where their daughter left off...."
