About this item
Daniel Hernandez helped save the life of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, and his life experience is a source of true inspiration in this heartfelt memoir, told in Spanish.
I dont consider myself a hero, says Daniel Hernandez. I did what I thought anyone should have done. Heroes are people who spend a lifetime committed to helping others.
When Daniel Hernandez was twenty years old, he was working as an intern for U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords. On January 8, 2011, during a Congress on Your Corner event, Giffords was shot. Daniel Hernandezs quick thinking saved Giffordss life until the paramedics arrived and took her to the hospital. Hernandezs bravery and heroism has been noted by many, including President Barack Obama.
But while that may have been his most well-known moment in the spotlight, Daniel Hernandez, Jr., is a remarkable individual who has already accomplished much in his young life, and is working to achieve much more. This memoir, told in Spanish, explores Daniels life, his character, and the traits that a young person needs to rise above adversity and become a hero like Daniel.
