Quite an honor for the young hero from Arizona. Via Chris Johnson at the Washington Blade:
The gay intern credited with saving the life of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) has been invited to sit alongside first lady Michelle Obama during the State of the Union address.
On Sunday, ABC News reported that Danny Hernandez, renowned as a hero for coming to Giffords’ aid during the shootings in Tucson, Ariz, two weeks ago, is set to attend President Obama’s speech with his father, Daniel Hernandez, Sr.
Hernandez reportedly told ABC News about his invitation and plans to attend the State of the Union address, which is scheduled for Tuesday before a joint session of Congress. According to ABC News, the president’s speech is set to take place on the same day as Hernandez’ 21st birthday.
Chris interviewed Hernandez a couple weeks ago. The article on that interview is here.
