President Obama meets with former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords and her husband, Mark Kelly, on Wednesday. Giffords testified before a Senate committee hearing on proposed gun control legislation. ”We must do something. It will be hard. But the time is now,” she said, emphasizing the last word. “You must act. Be bold. Be courageous. Americans are counting on you.” (Photo: The White House; caption via The New York Times)
Gabby Gifford leading the Pledge of Allegiance at the DNC. She walked slowly but with confidence (next to the Democratic Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz) and the crowd chanted her name. And I cried like a baby.
