I miss Sarah. I miss her fierce sense of joy and determination. She will always have a place in my heart. I was honored that Sarah and Jim shared their lives with me, so that I could share their story with a much larger audience. It is a true privilege to be making this film about two of our greatest American heroes.
In April 1994 I started working at an organization called Handgun Control, Inc., which was chaired by Sarah Brady. Because I did state legislation, one of my key roles was as traveling companion to Jim Brady, who was one of our organization's most important spokespeople. At first I was a bit nervous.
