Love, Actually

Think you've found the perfect gift for your parents this Christmas? Find a great sale on the power drill dad wanted? Buy a sweater you think your mom will adore?

You can give up now. You won't be able to top the present that Alexis Goggins gave her mother:

-- A 7-year-old-girl is being hailed as an "angel from heaven" and a hero for jumping in front of an enraged gunman, who pumped six bullets into the child as she used her body as a shield to save her mother's life.

Alexis Goggins, a first-grader at Campbell Elementary School, is in stable condition at Children's Hospital in Detroit recovering from gunshot wounds to the eye, left temple, chin, cheek, chest and right arm.

I don't even know what to say. I can only imagine the emotions going through her mother's mind and heart as she looks at her little girl and realizes that her little girl took those bullets for her. Wow.
