My Dinner With Helen Thomas

With the recent incident that happened just before the summer, Helen took a break from public life until just two weeks ago when I visited Washington, D.C. to have dinner with Helen and some other very generous bidders who won Dinner With Helen Thomas with all proceeds going to a very worth charity.

As time permitted during our time that evening, we took a few minutes here and there to talk about life, how she was doing and just what she planned to do next. A woman with much to say, and a vast amount of information only Helen could share, Helen gave all at the dinner table more reason than ever to encourage her to share some of the most amazing stories than no one has ever been told about the numerous presidential administrations she served under as Dean of the White House Press Corps.

We spent a fair amount of time listening to her recount the days she spent traveling with then President Richard Nixon to China. Oh the stories she shared. None of us had any idea of what actually took place during that trip – at least not from the eyes of the woman walking alongside the President of the United States.

If you haven’t met her, to understand Helen Thomas you must be willing to accept the following as 100% true:
Helen Thomas is pro humanity and anti-war, anti-killing or anything that can put people in harm’s way. She does not nor will she ever accept war as an answer to anything but an increase in the loss of life.

Now, take into account the comments that caused Helen Thomas, who some consider the first lady of journalism, to end her career.
Don’t stop now. There’s more!
