    It is completely understandable why she is stepping down, with more important things to concentrate on, and a life with her husband without having to travel to Washington DC. She will remain in my thoughts and prayers for her continued recovery.

    Rest in Peace

    Her comeback is nothing less than miraculous. It's amazing to see her speak that well after all she's been through.

    Being a former Speech Pathologist, I totally agree. I also thought despite that, it was highly unlikely that she would recover cognitive function and speech to the degree necessary to function as a congresswoman... Sad, that Loughner did succeed in ending her political career, but at least he didn't take her life.

    A hero. Shot in the head by a man poisoned by mental illness and right-wing rhetoric.

    I have read the book about Gabby and thought it such an excellent book. It was a true testament to Gabby and Mark's love and their strength, as well as the things they have accomplished and will continue to accomplish in their lives.


    Here is a link to the 20/20 interview with them.

    This is a great link because it has all of the episodes from 20/20 for the past few seasons, including the ones about Susan and Josh Powell and the one about Tina Watson who died at the hands of her husband while on her honeymoon scuba diving with him

    Post 19 months after mass shooting, ex-Rep. Giffords moves back to Tucson

    By the CNN Wire Staff
    updated 8:13 PM EDT, Sun August 12, 2012(CNN) -- Nineteen months after she and 18 others were shot at a political event -- six of them fatally -- former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords returned home Sunday to her native southern Arizona, her husband said.
    Giffords has spent most of the time since the January 8, 2011, attack at medical facilities in Houston recovering from being shot in the head at a "Congress On Your Corner" event outside a Safeway supermarket in Tucson. She's returned to her hometown several times since that shooting, though not permanently until now.
    "Moving back to Tucson today," her husband Mark Kelly, a retired Navy captain and astronaut, wrote Sunday on his Twitter feed. "Gabby has been waiting for this day for a long time." more at link: http://www.cnn.com/2012/08/12/us/ari...fords-returns/

    Space Shuttle Endeavour will fly over Tucson

    Former Shuttle Commander Mark Kelly, the husband of former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, put in a request to NASA for the Tucson flyover since it's not that much of a detour form the original flight path.

    Endeavour is currently on a cross country flight, piggybacking on a 747, from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida to its final destination; the California Science Center in Los Angeles.

    (It's between 11 am to 12pm that it will fly tomorrow over the town. (Arizona Time) Pretty cool at 1500 feet. That's low. argh! (national pirate's day) Cameras ready!)

    snipped

    It will fly over between 11 a.m. and 12 p.m. Thursday. It is going to be flying at an altitude of about 1500 feet over the UA mall.

    It's been corrected to 15,000 feet. Not 1500.

    Can you imagine 1500'? I was.

    Post Giffords cheers on Endeavour's last voyage

    September 20, 2012 8:48 PM (CBS/AP) Former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona got to witness history fly over her state.
    With her husband, astronaut Mark Kelly, Giffords watched retired space shuttle Endeavour make its last flight on top of a jumbo over Tucson. The shuttle was en route to California, where it landed. It will head on over to Los Angeles as it will become a museum.

    The flyover was to honor Giffords, who was injured in a shooting rampage last year. Before retiring from her House seat, she was a member of the House committee on science, space and technology.

    Both Giffords and Kelly watched the flyover from a parking garage at the University of Arizona. The former congresswoman was seen wearing a cap and a T-shirt that read "Endeavour 134."
    "That's my spaceship," said Kelly, who was Endeavour's last commander. more at link: http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-201_162-...s-last-voyage/
