Over the weekend, beloved Arizona representative Gabrielle Giffords announced she will leave Congress to focus on her health. Her resignation comes nearly a year to the day after Giffords was shot in the head during a deadly shooting rampage that claimed the lives of six people at an event in Tucson, Arizona. In the video announcement, Giffords admitted, “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.”

Giffords’ incredible post-shooting recovery — and the love affair between she and her astronaut husband Mark Kelly — was pretty tearjerking. Not that we were crying while watching this video or anything. [YouTube]
