It’s been … a week. Seems like a week and a half! So much going on, but it’s Friday! This is my chance to send out gorgeous, amusing, odd, silly, inspiring bits of tweets I noticed throughout the week. Enjoy!
Note: I’ve been captivated all week by tweets from the ground in Cairo made by ordinary people doing extraordinary things. There isn’t just one that could capture the ups and downs and ultimate high of the last 24 hours in Egypt. The Egyptian people have a long road ahead still but … wow!
@SarahEOlson2009 Gabrielle Giffords asks for toast
[SEO: Gabrielle Giffords’ story continues to amaze me. We all take for granted that we can ask for toast. But consider the implications. A month after being shot in the head, she can not only connect a thought into the mechanics of speech to ask for toast, but she knows what toast is; she knows she wants and likes it, and can express that. Anyone who ever dealt with brain injury, or the after-effects of stroke (which I did with my mother), knows that Giffords’ progress is truly remarkable.]
