Why Gabrielle Giffords is my hero!


September 7, 2012

Maybe if you’re a Republican, or not interested in politics, you missed this. It was Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords leading the Democratic Convention in the “Pledge of Allegiance.”  What courage it must have taken for her to cross that stage at the Democratic convention.

Talk about someone who came back from adversity, and isn’t done yet. If you want to read an inspiring story, read the book her husband, Mark Kelly wrote, entitled Gabby. It talks about her fight back after a gunman shot her outside the supermarket in Tuscon, Arizona. It gives you insight into why she had the courage to lead the crowd in the “Pledge of Allegiance.”

Gabrielle and Mark just set up a super- pac that will take money to support congress people dedicated to bi-partisanship, and standing for the issues that they think are important. It would be wonderful if Congress would start working together again!

You have to admire a woman who can struggle back from a devastating injury, and still put a smile on her face. You can’t squelch a person with spirit and determination.  Now, she’s supporting people that she think will make a difference. That’s why she is my hero!

  1. Hi,
    My only words are that this is simply beautiful. I had the chance to see her on the internet as she had her last day in congress. I cried because I saw a woman who had not given up, a woman who was going to keep on walking on. I love her. Thanks for letting me know her husband has written a book about her. I will definitely buy it. It has moved all other books I have to read down the notch. Her book is next.
    Enjoyed this article tremendously.
    Ciao,
    Patricia
