In that David Gregory interview, I think it’s probably impossible not to cry while watching Snow talk about his family — about his love for his children and his wife. They have a lot of prayers being said in their names today.
As for the rest of us, Tony Snow talks in that interview about “a depth of happiness” that cancer made possible in his life — he became closer to his wife, his family, being forced to think about the eternal things in a new way. The rest of us ought to sign off of our computers, turn the Blackberry off, and be with our loved ones — totally present — living this day as if it might be your last.
“God put us on earth to help each other,” Snow told Gregory. Consider these days of reflection on the example of Tony Snow as his help to all of us.
“When you die, you graduate,” Snow told Gregory. Happy Graduation Day.
