It was announced today that Rep. Gabrielle Giffords reads the final chapter of her memoir in the accompanying audiobook. Gabby: A Story of Courage and Hope was co-written by Giffords' husband Mark Kelly and he reads the rest of the book. Giffords has reportedly been struggling with language, so as with all aspects of her recovery, the fact that she can already read an entire chapter aloud is pretty miraculous.
Between this photo and the one that (also) ran a short while ago of Gabrielle Giffords and Mark Kelly embracing at his retirement ceremony, I find myself reassured that this brave woman is doing more than just fine. They say a picture is worth a thousand words and I certainly appreciate Jezebel filling us in on Ms. Giffords' (amazing) progress from time-to-time. Thanks for this.
