real american hero

Remind me to tell my daughter about Annie Oakley. I just watched this documentary about her, and am just astounded at not only her sharpshooting and business savvy, but the way she carried herself in the face of childhood abuse, competition, oakleyand later, libel. Married for almost 50 years, Annie and her husband, Frank, held nontraditional roles with the utmost respect and undying love for each other. This kind of person is a role model I want my daughter to emulate. These are the heroes I want her to know. This is the kind of American culture I don’t want to see buried in favor of superficial celebrity.

    Sounds like a good documentary. I must watch it.

    I’m sure it is a bit more accurate than the Broadway production of “Annie Get your Gun” which I have seen. 🙂
