Gabriella Giffords

I am gratified that “Gabby” Giffords is recovering and I hope soon that she returns to the House to resume representing her constituents.

I would be far more gratified if nobody had been shot, nobody killed or wounded and a very precious child whose potential will never be realized were instead alive and safe with her family.

I am not a political ally of Rep Giffords but if a legislator cannot represent the interests of those who elected her, this country is less free. An attack on any elected official is an attack on the republic.

I hope Gabby and the others wounded recover from their injuries and the names of those who died are remembered fondly by those who knew and loved them.
