WHO WAS SHOT, THEN KEPT ON WITH HIS SPEECH, FOR AN HOUR LONGER?
There are many tales of bravery attributed to several American presidents but the one that tops the charts for me, happened in October in 1912, when midway through his speech, President Teddy Roosevelt was shot in the chest by an assailant. The shooter had apparently intended shooting him in the head when his arm was bumped by someone in the audience. The bullet had been slowed down by striking the president's spectacles case and a 50-page copy of the speech, avoiding damaging vital organs. The audience was clearly alarmed, so Teddy asked them to be calm, before continuing to talk for another hour
