Did any of you watch the "Together we thrive: Tuscon and America" speech by President Obama last night? I caught just a few minutes of it and I'm glad I did, if only to hear this particular sentence ::
"Gabby opened her eyes for the first time."
The crowd began to roar with applause and many broke down with tears of joy. Michelle Obama hugged Mark Kelly, Gabrielle Giffords' husband. It was the kind of moment that plays over and over in your head and it's all I've been able to think about ever since. I'm so happy to hear the news of her recovery (and baffled at the same time - I mean, it's not every day that a person can take a bullet to the head and survive) and wish nothing but the best for her, her family, friends and supporters.
