When a Jew nearly dies..he or she will often say a special prayer of thanks for the gift of life. A woman says it after she gives birth; you say it after a car accident...

Two weeks ago, a border guard was stabbed. He was lucky to survive and somehow managed to shoot his attacker before collapsing. Somehow, perhaps by sheer will, he fought his way back...and today, he and his family went to the Western Wall, the holiest place in the Jewish religion to which we have access to say this special prayer.

That was the plan, that he would arrive. And when he did, his friends and fellow border guards, had a special greeting for him...watch this...watch this and feel the love that is so much a part of our country.
