Daniel Hernandez Jr., the 20-year-old gay college intern whose sharp reflexes are credited with helping to save the life of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, has been invited to sit with First Lady Michelle Obama at Tuesday's State of the Union address, reports ABC News.
"I'm both honored and excited to have the opportunity to travel to our nation's Capitol for a once in a lifetime event," said the third-year political science major at the University of Arizona. "Also the chance to bring my father along for his first trip to Washington, D.C. The State of the Union is a pivotal moment because it is our opportunity to find where we are and where we will be going as a nation in this upcoming year."
Tuesday is also Hernandez's 21st birthday. Some birthday present, right?
