Many have wondered whether Rep. Gabrielle Giffords will continue in congress and seek another term. Yesterday, a video was released ending all speculation:
Whatever differences I have held with Rep. Giffords performance in congress prior to the horror of January 8, 2011, I am mindful of the fact that vagaries in life change us. Not everything is political; in fact, ‘politics’ does not matter at the end of the day. What does matter is that Rep. Giffords has beaten the odds: she not only has survived – she has surpassed!
I am impressed with Giffords’ recovery – a miracle that only God could provide. She is a living testimony, and what is also revealed is her determination to live and continue working in whatever capacity that may be.
My prayer and hope for Rep. Giffords is for the full restoration of her health and continued success in whatever path she chooses for herself. I wish only the best for her and her family.
God’s blessings to you, Rep. Giffords.
