Space of One Minute

Yesterday morning, Rep.Gabrielle Giffords (D)watched her husband Mark Kelly captain the Endeavor shuttle into an orbit speed that would get you from Chicago, Il to Columbus, OH in about one minute (17,500 mph or 290 miles per minute.)

It took less than one minute Jan. 8, 2011 near Tucson, AZ to alter every physical aspect of her self, when she sustained a gunshot wound to her head. About 185,760 minutes have passed since that happened. (129 days=185,760 minutes)

I wish Gabrielle and Mark many more of the good minutes and fewer of the tough ones.

About Mrs. Fitz

Hello! I'm Michele Fitzpatrick, a Chicago writer. Like our town, a work in progress. As a journalist, teacher and writing coach I think all of us live our stories and sharing them creates moments that remind us we're connected. And that is enough.
