Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords Makes Bold Return!

"I had to be here for this vote..I could not take the chance that my absence could crash our economy." 

This was the bold statement made by AZ Rep. Gabby Giffords as she made a triumphant return to Congress yesterday to vote. As you may recall, she was the target of a terroristic plot executed back in January. Giffords was shot in the head while six others lost their lives & 12 others were wounded. 

Yesterday, to the surprise of her peers, she appeared on the floor to vote. People.com reports that many of them cried at the site of her. They all greeted her with a standing ovation, and she greeted all of them by name. Wow... what a blessing! Best wishes for her recovery!
