Today marks the 4 year anniversary of the tragic shooting that claimed the life of 6 in Tucson, Arizona and injured thirteen others, including Congresswoman Gabby Giffords. After her almost fatal injury, many thought Congresswoman Giffords would never walk or talk again. No one could have predicted what a comeback this amazing woman would make.
In the four years since the attack, Congresswoman Giffords has crisscrossed the country making the case for common sense laws to protect our families, our children, and our communities from experiencing the horror she and others faced that January morning.
We know sometimes our work feels overwhelming. We don’t win every battle, and we don’t have the unlimited cash of the gun lobby, but today we should step back and look at what we have accomplished and the movement we are building together every day. That’s thanks to your hard work and to our heroes like Congresswoman Giffords.
