Nun brings her message of love to Oklahoma City

Sister Helen Prejean took a message of love to survivors of the Oklahoma City federal building bombing.

Prejean, the Louisiana nun whose anti-death penalty crusading earned her a nomination for this year's Nobel Peace prize, told survivors Monday that the planned execution of convicted bomber Timothy McVeigh won't bring them peace - only love can do that."Hate is replaced only by love and by community, not by people trying to convince you with arguments, especially someone who hasn't even lost a family member," said Prejean, the author of "Dead Man Walking."
