A Beautiful Embrace
Lowell, I listened to the SOTU on the radio. That moment is when I lost it! I literally burst into tears. I was in my truck parked outside a Mexican dive on Pico in West LA. I was supposed to be in there at 6:30 to meet some friends, but couldn't pull myself away. I spent another 10 minutes collecting myself! I had know idea that the Norwoods and Mrs. al Suhail had embraced. I saw it on the news at 4:30AM the next morning before work and again burst into tears. What a powerful, powerful moment.
Imagine. Momentous stories converged in Iraq to bring these two families together at a State of the Union speech in Washington D.C., the very throne of Freedom in this world. Only a bitter and cynical political party could rain on such an occasion and misinterpret the forces that made it blossom.
Sounds like a post for Wagonboy's Garage -Wb
