Lee Woodruff

Husb (that's him) and I heard Lee Woodruff speak last night at Warwick's book store. She's the wife of Bob Woodruff, the news reporter that suffered a brain injury in Iraq. They have written a book "In an Instant: A Family's journey of love and healing." Now in paperback, with a very moving afterward by Bob, Lee, and each of their 4 kids.
Lee is an incredible woman and I am humbled by her intelligence, humor and communication skills. If you ever get a chance to hear her speak, do. She spoke articulately, with total integrity about their own experience, and about the soldiers returning from Iraq (an estimated 10%) with tramatic brain injury. She and Bob have a non-profit, Bob Woodruff Family Fund, to raise public awareness and help brain injury service members. I'm going to make a donation right now.
