It started out as a fluke. Lynn Faulkner had been offered an extra ticket to a Bush campaign event by his neighbor Linda Prince. Mr. Faulkner decided to offer it to his 15-year old daughter Ashley who he expected would decline, as she would have to miss some school to attend. But his daughter surprised him. Ashley reminded her dad how four years ago they attended a similar event when then Texas Governor George W. Bush visited the same spot on the campaign trail. Ashley remembered attending that event with both her father and her mother Wendy Faulkner. It was raining that day and they all stood in the rain awaiting Governor Bush eating Triscuit crackers enjoying the time together and hoping to get a glimpse of the would-be president. Ashley recalled holding her mothers hand as they waited. So she decided to go again this year, but this time her mother could not attend. Wendy Faulkner was murdered on 9/11/01 in the south tower of the World Trade Center.

God bless him.
I've seen it before, but it makes me cry every time I see it. It reminds me of what he said during the third debate when he was asked about his faith. He said, "And I also pray for my little girls." He's such a good man.
I always get a lump in my throat the size of a goose egg when I see this pic.
This is a good man. A good American father and husband. Lord God knows he is not perfect, but none of us are. This is the man I want leading our nation.
I couldn't agree with you more.
Could someone please post the picture as for some reason it would not show up for me. Thanks.

The story is incredibly moving and the picture there tells more than it's 1,000 words.
For some reason that I don't understand when I go there the picture does not show up.
God bless our President Forever.
Damned sure can't do that with Botox.
I saw the picture. It was wonderful!
