A VALENTINE TO GABBY AND MARK

Feb 10th, 2013 | By Dr Jerry D Elrod | Category: Senior Moments Blog

It isn’t often seniors choose to reach very far outside our own circle of romance. Comes Valentine’s Day and we think of those who are especially close to us. They are the ones to whom we extend our greetings of love, our symbols of affection, like candy and flowers and sentimental cards. When it is a serious message we send, it may include a piece of jewelery or an item especially desired by the recipient.

But there are others who are especially deserving of our messages of deep down affection, respect, honor and tribute. Gabby Giffords and Mark Kelly rank among those deserving of such recognition. Following on the tragic attack in a grocery store parking lot on an ordinary Saturday morning, they have chosen for their lives to be dedicated to espousing sanity and safety in the gun control issue.
