It was one of those events of the last year, that we could not get past: the attempted assassination of Congresswoman Gabby Giffords and her remarkable fight to recover from that gunshot wound in the head. Today, Gabby announced that she is resigning from Congress. It is undoubtedly a great loss for Washington. A true representative of the people, someone skilled at bringing people together to get the nation’s work done, is leaving. But Gabby may, already, be doing her greatest work. All of last year, she and her husband, Mark Kelly, have shown us what true courage (and true love) look like. If we ever were unclear about how to respond when darkness comes our way, we now have no excuses. Gabby Giffords is teaching us how to fight, every single day, to rise above it. We can only be grateful…
