Even in the face of utter darkness, the sun still shone in the Ireland household. The family's optimism was there at Craig Hospital, where Patrick Ireland went to recover from bullet wounds to his head and foot sustained during the shootings at Columbine High School. Optimism was there when Patrick's little sister, Maggie, volunteered at Craig and helped a man with a spinal cord injury take his first step. Now Maggie Ireland has a chance to spread her family's can-do attitude to the entire state as Miss Colorado 2007, and to the entire nation when she competes in January's Miss America Pageant.
