Sara Weaver lost her mother and brother in August 1992. Both of them were killed by government agents. Today, she says she has finally left the anger behind, finding religion — and forgiveness.

These days, the remaining Weaver family members live near Kalispell, Mont. Sara Weaver says her father is a doting grandfather.
