I missed the original announcement because I haven’t been turning the TV on until the evening news.
But I saw niblets of the news on Twitter. And had to find out what was going on.
So, I took some time yesterday afternoon to sit and watch the video of her announcement.
Tears streamed down my face.
Even though I’ve never met her.
She’s as much a part of my day as many of the people I see in my daily life here in Missouri.
There’s something warm and real about her.
I remember crying when she announced her breast cancer diagnosis.
I remember the day she decided to take off the hairpiece she had worn on the air during her chemo treatment. I cried with joy.
That woman embodies incredible courage. Incredible strength. Incredible humanity.
I enjoy other anchors. But none have connected with my heart like Robin has.
This quote from Elisabeth Kübler-Ross sums it up for me:
I will hold her needs in my heart and keep her close in my prayers.
Will you join me?
