The Real GWB

The photo you see is not from anyone in the media. The picture was taken by Lynn Faulkner, father of Ashley Faulkner. As President Bush was walking by someone yelled out that this girl (Ashley) lost her mother on 9/11. President Bush turned around to meet Ashley.

    "He changed from being the leader of the free world to being a father, a husband and a man," Faulkner said. "He looked right at her and said, 'How are you doing?' He reached out with his hand and pulled her into his chest."

    Faulkner snapped one frame with his camera.

    "I could hear her say, 'I'm OK,' " he said. "That's more emotion than she has shown in 2-1/2 years. Then he said, 'I can see you have a father who loves you very much.' "

    Later Lynn said this after the incident:

    "I'm a pretty cynical and jaded guy at this point in my life," Faulkner said of the moment with the president. "But this was the real deal. I was really impressed. It was genuine and from the heart."

This was not contrived or done as a photo-op. If you want to know who your President is, look no further than Ashley and Lynn Faulkner.
