It’s a wonderful story about prayer, about a faith that can sustain people in good times and in bad times," said President Bush Monday, summarizing the tale of Heather Mercer and Dayna Curry, the two Shelter Now workers held by the Taliban for three months. As Mercer and Curry received a special White House tour, they were greeted by just about everyone, including Vice President Cheney, Secretary of State Colin Powell, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, national security adviser Condoleezza Rice, and White House chief of staff Andy Card. Mercer agreed that it was a story about prayer. "We know we’re here because of the prayers of people all over the country, all over the world. And I think if we had a whole lifetime to say thank you, we wouldn’t do it right, we wouldn’t say it appropriately," she said.
