Daniel Hernandez adds his voice


by David Safier

Daniel Hernandez has an op ed in Politico today. For those of you who haven't followed Daniel since he helped save Gabby's life two years ago, he is now a member of the Sunnyside School Board, the district where he went to school and learned the lifesaving techniques he used in the Safeway parking lot, and has become active in the fight for sane gun laws. He also has a book coming out soon. A formidable young man.

Here's what Daniel writes in the first paragraph:

Two years ago today, I was helping my boss, then-Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, at a community event outside a Tucson supermarket when a man armed with a semi-automatic pistol and a high-capacity magazine fired on the crowd, killing six people and critically injuring Rep. Giffords. Ten months later, I was elected to the board of a nearby school district, where I am now responsible for the well-being of 19,000 of my community’s children.
