This week a wedding video went viral, getting more than 30 million views. Todd Bachman, the biological father of the bride, stopped the wedding and reached out to his daughter's stepfather, Todd Cendorsky, and invited him to join him as they both walked "their daughter" down the aisle. In a time when blended families are the new normal, says Rabbi Brad Hirschfield, president of Clal and co-founder and executive editor of TheWisdomDaily.com, Mr. Bachman's honesty, generosity of spirit and love showed us that even in challenging situations, "the one thing over which we can always have control is our own reaction."
