Rep. Gabrielle “Gabby” Giffords” of Arizona made a surprise appearance on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives this afternoon to vote on the bill to raise the debt ceiling. She was greeted with a standing ovation.
What a gutsy woman. Shot in the head in January, it was a miracle she even survived. But there she was, smiling, waving … and voting. Shunning the wig most women might wear, she sported her own natural short-cropped dark hair, the result of several surgeries to repair damage to her brain and skull.
How wonderful to see her back. Way to go, Gabby!
