I read about this over at Knowledge is Power. I was so outraged, I had to immediately make my own post about this, because I recognized the girl in the photo from a recent television show. Maureen was on The Dog Whisperer. She needed help because her dog wasn't trained to walk on a leash, and she wanted to be able to take the dog for walks using her walker. Cesar Millan helped her and her dog, and it really changed Maureen's life. You could see the sheer joy in her face, her whole being just lit up, when she was able to enjoy a trip down the sidewalk with her dog.
She was so moved, she started up her own project to help train therapy dogs for children with disabilities. She appeared again on The Dog Whisperer, with some of her canine students and their disabled owners, and you could tell she was really making a difference in people's lives.
So it really pissed me off to see the news that she was the young woman attacked at the Bush meeting. Thank God she wasn't seriously injured. I hope the scumbag who did this gets a maximum sentence. And I hope Maureen is able to quickly put this behind her and continue making the world a better place.
Please keep Maureen and her work in your prayers. And remember: this is how progressives fight for "peace."
