Two Real American Heroes

There is something amazing that is built into some people that leads them to do phenomenal things. Two of those people are Mark Kelly, commander of the space shuttle, Endeavor and his wife, Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, who survived a near-fatal shooting earlier this year.

That *special something* that exists within those two people now shines as an example to the rest of the world.

Charlie Sheen brags on and on about his "tiger blood" and "Adonis DNA"...but in reality his make-up couldn't hold a flame's flicker to Mark and Gabrielle's blazing light.

Donald Trump runs HIS mouth about his wealth, prestige and all of his oh-so-important connections. But when it comes to leading by example, Trump will never become the role-model that Mark and Gabrielle are.

Mark and Gabrielle are devoted to each other. They made a promise when they got married and they're keeping it. They are good parents to their children and care very much about the well-being of the citizens of this Country.

They are both dedicated to their goals. And that is why Congresswoman Giffords reached out to her constituents on January 8th. And even though a demented shooter put a bullet through her brain, Gabrielle didn't give up. She survived that attack, in part, because she fights for what she believes in. Now she is going to watch her husband , Mark Kelly, blast-off into space. She is behind his work in the space mission 100%.

Mark Kelly is going to leave his wife, children and the very earth that he stands on, behind and fulfill his obligation in space. He is a heroic adventurer. And the world will be a better place for it.

I am very happy that, despite what happened on that fateful day, Congresswoman Giffords and Mark Kelly are united and moving forward. May God bless both of them.

Arizona should be proud.
