Katie Garvey: Daddy, what's the greatest thing you ever saw?

Ben Garvey: Greatest thing you ever saw. Umm. One time when I was a little boy, I was playing with my slingshot and I saw this Jaybird. I don't know why but I shot him.

Katie Garvey: You killed a birdie?

Ben Garvey: I didn't mean to. I don't even know why I shot at him, but I felt so bad, I started praying to God that he would come back. And all of a sudden the Jaybird woke up. He just flew away.

Katie Garvey: God saved him?

Ben Garvey: Yeah, I think so.
