I was riveted to my laptop until 1am last night, watching the Tucson Memorial on You Tube. Daniel Hernandez–what a stand-up guy, what a true hero. President Obama–that’s as perfect as any speech can get. He hit everything we wanted to hear, with the right tone, the right amount of emotion, and the right points to stress. To make our country better for our children, to see America in their innocent eyes full of promise. I am really proud of our president and our country.
As for Giffords recovery and opening her eyes. Unbelievable! I’m no doctor, but if a bullet traverses your brain (no matter whether it criss-crosses hemispheres or not), how incredible is it that she’s responding to commands and itching her nose? That’s what you call millions and millions of prayers across the country.
