Morning Buzz
Good Morning!! It is Monday, sorry the "buzz" is so late today, but I did NOT have enough coffee. Ac360 is pre-empted tonight for a Sanjay Gupta special, so enjoy this incredible story!! And a very Merry Christmas to those who celebrate the holiday!!!

10p PREMIERE, Impact Your World: Rescuing Yussif

Born in Baghdad only seven months before the start of the war in Iraq, Youssif knew only a world of unpredictable violence. And yet, his family described him as happy and energetic. All that changed in January when three masked assailants doused Youssif in gasoline, set him on fire and left a scarred and sullen boy. CNN Correspondent Arwa Damon's story about Youssif, moved millions of CNN viewers and CNN.com users and sparked a worldwide outpouring of generosity to get medical help for the five-year-old boy.

Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta reports on Youssif's journey from the violent and uncertain streets of Baghdad to a burn center in southern California in the network's first Impact Your World special, Rescuing Youssif.

Hi Jamie :-)

That's the best news. I'm so excited about it. I cried when I saw it first, it made me so mad. It breaks my heart to hear the horrible story!! so thank you very much for showing it again!! Thank you very much to CNN for bringing the light on his story. Youssif is such a beautiful boy. This story is absolutely amazing and very impressive,so it will remain in my mind vividly than any other famous movie stars. Thanks again for this God send.

And... I hope you will spend this winter with long lasting warmth. Have a happy Christmas. Merry Christmas CNN staff :-D

I really am looking forward to this special. I have kept up with Youssif and his journey since he was first reported on by Arwa. I hope that he can once again become that happy little boy. Can't wait to see this report!

AC,I am glad that you put this notice up,because,I was stuffing stockings,(for my 2-kids,Kim is 28yrs,and Chris is 30yrs of age),yes,I am from the South,and I am so glad that "my" 2-kids are around,I make sure that Santa does a lil something for them,each Christmas,(and i sent word to Santa to get you one also)..

I watched this report,or movie,about this young man,Youssif,and was indeed touched by what happened to him,by those Evil men..KUU-DOES,to CNN and all the people that helped them,to get to America,to get help for his beautiful young man!

Will you be doing a follow up,story,to let,me,and all others,know the results of the,final operations?-Also,where did they spend Christmas?,they showed them having Thanksgiving,with an American family,blessings to them,for doing that!

A fellow Southener,(whoops,lady)and developing Christian,(being a Christian is a learning process,every single day,isn't it?),have a great Holiday Season,and be safe out there!
