Anyway, the person of interest was in the hospital to visit the combat wounded troops! How neat is that. As we learned from the people on the hallway she had already spent time with the troops at Walter Reed Hospital earlier in the week.
Okay, I was trying not to be to geeky or even getting in the way of what was going on. I just stood and observed as she and her small team with military escort visited the rooms of the combat wounded. WOW! How special is that. It wasn't the drive by and shake a hand kind of visit either. She was spending some real time with the soldier and the family. Just getting to see her move through the hallway was honor enough.
To me this is one of the good news stories that never makes it out to the world.
After she had spent over three hours on the ward she made time to say hello to my brother, my sister in law, and my Mom. My brother was in the hospital recovering from some serious surgery. She talked and took pictures and shared her time. My brother is a huge music fan so it helped his spirits and healing for sure. The smile on his face was electric.
As she was leaving I asked if I could have a picture. Yep, that is me and Stevie Nicks.
I really appreciated what Ms Nicks did for my brother that day. Just sharing her time and spirit made the day that much brighter.
As I said, you never know who you will see. Last time my brother was in the hospital some guy named George W. stopped by for a hello and pictures.
