Super Bowl XLVII: Steve Gleason remains the spirit of New Orleans - The Washington Post
"“We went from losers to winners that night,” says Mayor Mitch Landrieu, sitting next to Gleason on the dais with Louisiana’s lieutenant governor and Mary Matalin and James Carville, the Washington political power couple and New Orleans natives.

“The city found itself again. Luther Vandross has a song called ‘A House is Not a Home.’ Well, we lost all our physical structures as Steve is losing his. But Steve helped us find something inside us that went beyond the physical and manifested itself in a determination."

This story is worthy of a lot of coverage & sharing. With all the dribble & nonsense that gets media attention, this story is head & shoulders above!

“Rebirth” they call the nine-foot statue outside the Superdome, of Gleason’s outstretched body on Sept. 25, 2006, the Saints’ first game in New Orleans since the flood, the death, the anger and the grief.

Thanks for posting, Dr. J. :9:

We have the opportunity to thank a person that gave his all to the survival of this city. He was there for us. Can we be there for him?
