She is awesome. I'm really glad there are still people like her in government.

Gabrielle Giffords attended the floor session today to vote on the debt ceiling bill.

I read the article you linked to your posting, VRBeauty, and had an unexpected reaction. First, I got tears in my eyes, then I got chills. The article didn't really go heavy on the melodrama, so I am not sure why I reacted that way except that, like all of us, I know the the story behind the story. But I am sitting here sniffling. Thank you so much for posting that.

Thanks for posting that. It was very, very moving. Even though I knew what I was going to be watching when I clicked on the link you posted, I still teared up.

I had much the same reaction, Deb. I think it was tears of gratitude... and respect.

I got pretty emotional too. It's so amazing what she's accomplished, and I'm glad she got such a big round of applause in the House. She deserved every bit of it.
