Daniel Hernandez's 'Note to Self' Is Worth the Watch

On January 8, 2011, the morning Gabby Giffords was shot, then-20-year-old intern Daniel Hernandez rushed to her side to apply pressure to her wound and watch over her until paramedics arrived. Credited with saving her life, he was commended for his bravery by President Obama.

Now a published author and member of the Sunnyside School District Governing Board, Hernandez references that time in a moving letter written to himself, as a part of CBS's "Note to Self" series. Watch the video segment below, broadcast earlier today on CBS This Morning, or read the text of the letter below the jump.
