Amy Biehl

I'm sure most people have heard her story, but I still find it incredible that her parents did what they did.

"Not only did the Biehls accept the men's apologies and urge their release, but they also hired two of the killers -- Peni and Nofemela -- to continue the good deeds and spread the ideals advocated by their late daughter. (Manqina was found guilty last year of raping a disabled teenager.)

Amy's mother Linda says of Peni, a guide and HIV/AIDS educator for the Amy Biehl Foundation: "He could be in prison, he could be dead. Instead, he's a father.

"He's a part of a very positive society in South Africa, raising a 2-year-old child to participate in a multiethnic, multigender society.

"To me, that's a great joy and happiness. I've been privileged to have that opportunity. "

The foundation's web site

I remember when she was killed. She was almost a local girl; Newport Beach is about 15 miles from me. I never could fathom the amount of forgiveness her parents were able to find. They're better people than I am. So was Amy.
