Abstract:

Sarah Brady's greatest childhood ambition was to be June Cleaver: a wife and mother in a happy, peaceful home filled with the laughter of family and friends, watching her children grow up surrounded by the same warmth and security she knew as a child. It was not to be. In January 1981, President Ronald Reagan appointed Sarah's husband, James Brady, as his White House press secretary. And on March 31 of that year, a would-be assassin named John Hinckley fired six shots at the president, severely wounding him and taking down Jim Brady as well. One of Hinckley's bullets tore through Jim's brain, causing devastating damage that changed their lives forever. A good fight is Sarah Brady's own plainspoken, moving story of what happened to her, to Jim, and to their son, Scott, who was just two when his father was shot. It's a story of great terror, pain, and dislocation, but also of triumph, love, and transformation. Above all, it's a story about how we cannot know what life will.
