Washington Blade interviews Daniel Hernandez, the heroic gay intern

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

Chris Johnson from the Washington Blade interviewed Daniel Hernandez yesterday. The gay intern for Rep. Gabrielle Giffords has been garnering an enormous amount of attention following his heroic actions during the horrific shooting. Chris had quite a conversation with Hernandez. Definitely worth a read. Here's the conclusion:

Asked whether he thinks Palin had a role in prompting the shootings, Hernandez said he’s not part of the investigation and doesn’t know what the causes were.

“I think the only thing that I can say is making sure that, in the future, we cut down on any kind of rhetoric, especially things that can be seen as something that may cause some violence in the future,” he said.

What does the future hold for Hernandez? He said he wants to pursue a role in public service and isn’t ruling anything out as part of that path.

“I don’t know in what capacity,” Hernandez said. “I’m not ruling anything out, but, right now, it’s too soon.”
