Witnessing History

I’m elated that the USA has already amassed 32 medals in London.  Our latest medal was a gold one!

Gabrielle Douglas not only vaulted, leaped, jumped and flipped her way into winning the biggest and most coveted prize in gymnastics – All-Around Title, she landed her way into the history books by becoming the first woman of color, any color, to do so.

 

 

She is not the only Douglas proudly representing her country overseas.  Her father, Air Force staff sergeant Timothy Douglas, has served in Afghanistan for the past 2 years.

And her tweet posted hours before today’s event:

 

Congratulations Gabrielle Douglas! Thank you AF NCO Douglas for your service!
