Update on the little girl held by the Airforce Sergeant

Remember that picture of Sergeant John G. holding the little Iraqi girl who was shot in the head?

Update: I don't have any details on her condition, but she survived, and was taken home by members of her extended family. That photo may just become one of the iconic images of this war. CNN did a story on it and interviewed Sgt. G. The interviewer asked how it was that he was the only one able to comfort her.

He replied, "I'm just old and have a big lap". Isn't that always the way it is with people who really make a difference in this world?

A childhood friend of his wrote to me and said that was typical of John.

Now lets all go out and keep making a difference.
