Gabrielle Giffords Focuses On Recovery and Resigns from Congress
Matt | On 23, Jan 2012
Lord, the water works are going to start on a Monday afternoon. It’s too early in the week for this!
Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, the brave Congresswoman who was the victim of a shooting one year ago, announced her resignation from Congress this week. In a pre-recorded video, Giffords said she is stepping down to continue to focus on her medical recovery. But she says, “I will be back…”
The video is really amazing because Giffords suffered a major brain injury when she was shot at point blank range on January 8, 2011. The Congresswoman was hosting the “Congress On Your Corner”event when Jared Lee Loughner opened fire killing six and wounding 13.
Her recovery has shown just how tough her spirit and will to live are. We wish her continued success in her ongoing recovery!
