Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, saying she must do the right thing for Arizona and herself in order to continue her healing, will resign from Congress this week.


Arizona is my home. Always will be. A lot has happened over the past year. We cannot change that. But I know on the issues we fought for, we can change things for the better. Jobs. Border security. Veterans. We can do so much more by working together.

I don’t remember much from that horrible day. But I will never forget the trust you placed in me to be your voice.

Thank you for your prayers and for giving me time to recover.

I have more work to do on my recovery, so to do what is best for Arizona, I will step down this week.

I’m getting better.

Every day, my spirit is high.

I will return and we will work together for Arizona and this great country.

Thank you very much.
