God Shed His Grace on Thee

August 7, 2009

A few years ago, a co-worker/friend was involved in a terrible car accident.   The car in which she was a passenger was hit head on by a drunk driver.

Felicia suffered severe head injuries, and was in a coma for 8 months.  Against all odds, she came out of the coma, but she will never be the same.

Felicia has three children, ages 9, 13, and 16.  They are currently on America’s Got Talent.   This clip isn’t the best quality, but it is incredibly moving.  I’ve been sitting here watching and crying (along with Sharon Osborne) for half an hour.

God bless you and your family, Felicia.

In other news, Daniel will become a U.S. citizen today.  When he went for his citizenship test in NYC a few weeks ago, he told the examiner, “After marrying my wife, this will be the greatest honor of my life.”

Congratulations, Daniel!  (I’ve been calling him Mr. America.)

  1. Congratulations Daniel! How ’bout “Captain America”?

  2. Daniel probably knows more about this country than most people born here. Congratulations on your citizenship, Daniel! (And I’m glad he has his priorities straight, too.)

    In my opinion, EVERY US citizen should have to take the citizen test. Also, OMG, you KNOW those kids? P.S. Wishing you lots of Peace, Love, Health and Happiness for the start of the new school year.
