A moment to remember

In case you missed the story on the internet, cousin Adrienne's granddaughter Sada Jacobson won a silver medal in women's sabres fencing. This duplicated her 2004 appearance.

Also, this is the first time since 1904 that an American team has taken all three medals in this sport.

When Sada's eyes began to tear, a gentleman in the first row handed her his handkerchief. She wiped the tears and handed back the handkerchief only then realizing that the donor was former President of the United States, George H.W. Bush.

She said had she known in time she might have kept it for a memory of that day.
