Phoebe a shining light with her willingness to forgive

Editor's Viewpoint

We all already knew that Phoebe Lyle is a remarkable young woman.

As a three-year-old she was knocked down by a car in Spain, left paralysed from the neck down and dependent on a respirator to breathe.

Those would be insuperable challenges for most but she has gone on to lead an amazing life, succeeding in mainstream education and training to be a journalist.

But those achievements pale in comparison to her spirit of forgiveness for the driver who knocked her down, promised to go for help, but then fled. She wants to meet him, but will he ever show the same character or courage as Phoebe?
