15th August 1989 : American hostages were being held in Iran and Lt. Col. William Higgins was murdered. President George H. Bush said that he didn’t retaliate militarily because the rest of the eight hostages might be killed if he did.
That's what happened on the 15th August 1989. Another very important thing happened on that day too!!! Our Dan was born. It was a Tuesday and she waited all day and finally arrived at 18:45 - by which time I had just about given up the will to live!! Today she is 19, Happy Birthday Dan. She is beautiful, clever, funny, so brave, independent, hardworking, kind, gentle and generous of spirit. She is without a doubt the very best thing I have in my life and she means the absolute world to me. I am so very proud of her and I love her with all my heart. Her name 'Danielle' means 'Gods chosen one' and that is very appropriate for her! Tuesday's child is full of Grace.
