Representative Giffords Resigns

Giffords Resigning
Representative Gabrielle Giffords announced on her web site that she will retire from Congress. Here is what she had to say in the video that she posted on the site.

A lot has happened over the past year. We cannot change that, but I know on the issues we fought for, we can change things for the better. Jobs. Border security. Veterans. We can do so much more by working together.

I don’t remember much from that horrible day, but I will never forget the trust you placed in me to be your voice.

Thank you for your prayers and for giving me time to recover. I have more work to do on my recovery. So to do what’s best for Arizona, I will step down this week. I’m getting better. Every day my spirit is high. I will return, and we will work together for Arizona and this great country.

I’m surprised that she is retiring because she fought such a brave battle to return to work following the horrible tragedy from last year. She recently appeared at the site to commemorate the one-year anniversary of the shootings in Tuscon.
