The Book: A True Story of Murder and a Mother's Forgiveness
When Brian Muha (pictured left) was shot and killed on May 31, 1999, his life was cut tragically short. At eighteen years old, he had his future before him. College graduation, a satisfying career, perhaps marriage, and a family. Family reunions and laughing with friends. Prayer. Travel. Hard work. Lots of Lebanese food. He had nothing but time until he had no time at all.
But his death is not what Brian Muha will be remembered for. Brian's spirit lives on today, stronger than ever, in the lives touched by the work done in his name and in his memory. Why? Because his mother has seen to that. This petite, stubborn, determined, delightful, faithful woman of God was not going to let a beating and a bullet deprive the world of the joy and the good she knew her son would have brought to it— and was already bringing to it. But she could only make that choice because of her intentional and steadfast decision to rely on, trust in, and cooperate with the God she loved and needed so much.
