Canadian figure skater Joannie Rochette, whose mom died just a few days ago, and who has touched our hearts with her courageous skating, has won bronze.
I have no words for this. I well up as I tap the keys on the keyboard. Joannie’s mom had come to Vancouver to watch her girl compete on the world stage, and tragedy struck. But Joannie carried on and now has a medal around her neck.
Canadians are proud of you, Joannie. And your mom is proud of you too.
