Gabby Giffords: a Woman of True Courage



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.

All of last year, she and her husband, Mark Kelly, have shown us what true courage (and true love) look like.
