We will never forget the tragic day in January when our friend, Cong. Gabrielle Giffords, was attacked, along with members of her team and her beloved community in Tucson. But we’ll also never forget the powerful example Gabby’s set in the days and months since – awing us all with her determination, grit, and deep love for her family, her community, and her country. Whether walking up the plane stairs to see husband Mark Kelly’s final Space Shuttle mission or walking on to the House floor to cast a critical vote, Gabby is always moving forward.

Monday, Diane Sawyer spoke about her interview with Gabby, and we were all struck by the amazing strides that Gabby has made in the last 10 months.

As Gabby’s husband Mark Kelly says, Gabby was “beat up, but not beaten,” and we couldn’t agree more. She is an amazing fighter, a devoted public servant, and a passionate advocate for democracy and free speech.

As Gabby continues on her road to recovery, we all at EMILY’s List want to remind her: she does not travel alone. Gabby’s amazing fight inspires all of us, and we all stand behind her.

Please join EMILY’s List in celebrating the amazing recovery Gabby Giffords has made and continues to make, and thanking her for her unwavering commitment. We will ensure that she receives your message.
