Sean O'Keefe Issues Statment About Son, Ted Stevens
Written by  {ga=admin}

Sean O'Keefe, who was seriously injured (along with his son Kevin) during the airplane crash over Alaska this week has issued this statement concerning his and the other survivors health.  The statement was issued by Louisiana Superintendent of Education, Paul Pastorek.  The crash killed Senator Ted Stevens of Alaska and others.

 

This is the statement:

Fortunately, the recovery and health of Sean, Kevin and their fellow survivors continues to be very positive. However, the O'Keefe family is grieving as the loss of Sean's colleagues and friends takes hold. The O'Keefe family continues to request prayers and support for the families of Senator Stevens and the four other individuals who lost their lives in this tragic accident.

 

Sean is making significant improvements. His medical condition has been elevated from the status of critical to serious. Despite initial reports, there was no serious trauma to Sean's pelvis. He did have a dislocated hip, which has been corrected. It does not appear that any of Sean's injuries require surgery. And we are encouraged by medical reports indicating that Sean's injuries are not life-threatening,

 

Despite suffering serious injuries that have required surgery, Kevin is also showing dramatic improvement. Even so, he is very much on the mend, and his condition has been elevated from serious to fair.

 

Sean and Laura's greatest concern continues to be for Senator Stevens and the others who did not survive the crash, and, of course, for their families and friends who are suffering this tragic loss. Therefore, at Sean and Laura's specific request, out of respect for Senator Stevens and his family, there will be no additional information or engagement with the media beyond this statement.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
