A New Role Model for Women — Gabby Giffords!


When I heard the news that Gabby Giffords was in Washington to vote, I took a deep breath, thankful that she is improving every day and oh so thankful that she is still a strong woman!  Her recovery since the shooting has truly been amazing!

Women such as Gabby are rare.  My desire has always been to be a role model for others, especially since I grew up in a small mill town where survival was tough! I grew up admiring Jacqueline Kennedy, Katherine Hepburn  and the teachers who guided me.  In the twenty-first century it appears role models are hard to define; however, the grace, determination and strength of a woman such as Gabby Giffords truly makes me proud.

Gabby Giffords recovery is a day-to-day struggle. No doubt she has fought her way back, all to the credit of her husband who never left her sight during those days of darkness, and the amazing team of medical professionals who cared for her.

Gabby Giffords is a new role model for women and America. Yesterday, we all breathed a sigh of relief, just to see her! Way to go, Gabby. May your recovery continue to show women that we seek our dreams and serve as role models to the world!
