tragedy

Ladies and Gentlemen. Everyday miracles happen. Sometimes we see them and most of the time we don’t. In our midst. In our country; a miracle happened in 2011 and it was in view for all of us to see. Her name is Gabrielle Giffords. A U.S. Congresswoman from the state of Arizona.

You remember her story back in January of 2011, while outside a grocery store, preparing to speak to her constituents, she was shot by a lone gun man with some sort of twisted agenda. She was waiting to do a presentation to her and happened to invite a young neighbor girl along that showed some interest in politics. Before she could even get started; tragedy struck.

I don’t want to spend much time on what happened. That atrocity isn’t the miracle. The miracle is that she is still here. Not only is she still here she is living and striving and the personification of a miracle walking, talking and breathing.

She has released a book: Gabby: A Story of Courage and Hope
She recently began a tour with the book and spoke to Diane Sawyer of ABC news. One of the adjectives used to describe her was having a never quit attitude. I love it. It is everything that I believe in and promote here through words, video and audio sources.

The piece done by Diane Sawyer is a true testament and shows her courage, grit and tenacity. She has come so far in just a short period of time. Her husband, Mark Kelly began recording her rehabilitation early on and said he did so because he knew she would want to know how it happened. Sadly there were six other people that died during that tragedy, including Christina Taylor-Green, who I spoke about earlier. Her bold endeavor to get back to good health is a true honor to the six that were lost on that day. She is a true inspiration.

One day I would love to interview her for this Blog, so I’m throwing that one to the universe.


Always Remember…You don’t have permission to Quit.
