When I first heard the news of a representative getting shot in the head, I feared for the worst. I never knew anyone could make such a great recovery after getting shot in the head. She truly is a remarkable example for us all, and I wish her all the best.

Sarah Palin executed her plan exactly as she promissed.  Put Gabriel in the crosshairs and eliminated her from congress.  Pretty scarry if you ask me!!!!

Rep Giffords- a wonderful human being and very smart woman.  Blessed with a
strong man who loves her dearly.  Prayers for a total recovery and future
