This inspirational woman is planning to focus on her continued recovery after being shot — we wish her the best!

Gabrielle Giffords‘ miraculous recovery from being shot on Jan. 8, 2011 has captivated the nation. On Jan. 22, she announced that she would continue focusing on her health by stepping down from her Arizona seat in the House of Representatives.

Gabrielle, 41, posted a video to her official website informing her supporters of the news.

“Arizona is my home, always will be,” she says. “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.”

Gabrielle will submit a formal letter of resignation this week, CNN reports.

We wish Gabrielle the best in her amazing recovery!

Maybe Roxanna Green could take Gifford’s spot in congress? She could put that University of Arizona education of hers to good use. That’s if Roxanna ever really attended the U of A like she claims in her book.
