Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) made a dramatic and touching first appearance to the House of Representatives last night. 

This was one of the Congresswoman’s first sightings since she was shot in the head in the parking lot of a Tucson grocery store while meeting with voters. 

Gabrielle drew cheers and applause as she entered the House to vote on the Debt Ceiling bill.

On her Twitter account, the courageous Congresswoman wrote: ‘The #Capitol looks beautiful and I am honoured to be at work tonight.’

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi said Giffords’ name inspires the love and admiration of Americans and called the lawmaker the “personification of courage.”

“Thank you, Gabby,” the House democratic leader added.  

And according to @CBS News, we’ve learned that Gabrielle is planning a re-election bid. It has been a crazy road for the Congresswoman with a lot more recovery ahead of her, but we are glad to see that she is back!
