She Opened Her Eyes
With any kind of luck, it looks like the bullet that flew through Rep. Giffords's brain last weekend won't have lasting damage to her ability to function.
I pray that she'll heal and be able to speak again, and when she does I hope she says, "I don't want any more targets placed over my likeness or that of my Congressional District. It's wrong, it's hateful and it's obviously dangerous."
She doesn't even have to mention the bloodthirsty Sarah Palin, her anti-Semitic use of the phrase blood libel or her cohorts in the teabagger crowd. People will know who she's talking about.
President Obama's speech last night reminded me why I voted for him and contributed to his campaign. I was proud of him once again.
I wish Rep. Giffords a speedy recovery.
