It was the most heartwarming moment of President Obama’s State of the Union address on Jan. 24th — when he wrapped his arms around gunshot victim Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords.
She told her constituents that after suffering a life-threatening gunshot wound to her brain, she would need to focus on her recovery.
So it was a poignant moment when the 41-year-old sat in the Capitol Building for President Obama‘s State of the Union address — the last that she would attend in person.
The President not surprisingly headed straight to Giffords when he entered the building and wrapped her in his arms for an extended hug, as if he was giving her a hug from the millions of Americans who have wished her well.
Good luck brave Gabby!
