“No, no, no. Life, life.”

I woke up this morning with the song by U2 in my head “it’s a beautiful life”.   One of the reasons why this song was swirling around was because I watched the ABC 20/20 special on Gabby Giffords and Mark Kelly right before I went to bed.  I laid in bed after watching this surreal experience that happened to a wonderful person and thought about my life.  Her determination, her will to live, her ATTITUDE towards what happened it all mesmerized my thoughts.
