On a Grand Scale…

After covering the administrations of 10 American presidents over a career spanning almost 60 years, veteran White House correspondent, Helen Thomas, took questions from the audience. 

Ms. Thomas earnestly and without hesitation…

Engaged with the audience members who eagerly lined up to ask questions.

Her responses were refreshingly emphatic and passionate…

And although her diminutive stature prevented her from standing exceedingly tall… 

On a grand scale she was altogether and overwhelmingly gracious…

And took the time to write personal messages to her fans.

All I can say is WHAT A HOOT !!!

  9. LBeeeze says:

    She's incredible. Can you imagine after a career of almost 60 years she's still going strong. She was there promoting her book, Listen Up, Mr. President.

  10. LBeeeze says:

    Yesss…..I was there!!! These are my photos. It was soooo cool. She is so sharp. Answered every question from the audience members who stood in line for their turns at the mic.

  11. LBeeeze says:

    Thank you sooooo much!!!! It was such a blast. She is such a grand lady.

  12. LBeeeze says:

    Exactly!!! She is such an inspiration. Very bright and not intimidated by random questions in the least.

  13. LBeeeze says:

    The event was sponsored by Left Bank Books last Thursday at Christ Church Cathedral in downtown St. Louis. The church was built in 1869, so it was a way cool location too.

  14. LBeeeze says:

  23. Oh that must have been so cool.

  24. LBeeeze says:

    Oh, it was. I was hoping that I wasn't bugging her with the camera, but she seemed quite comfortable. She was so incredibly gracious.

  25. Kiwi says:

    i dont know if you believe the buddhist saying of "The Form reflects the Spirit", but in her case, it seems to me that way!
    i have to check out the book when i have time ! πŸ™‚

  26. LBeeeze says:

    I don't know if I've ever heard that saying before, but I really like it. Also, it's very, very encouraging for you to say this because it means I captured the essence of her personality.
