You tried to create for all of us a world as dark and evil as your own. But know this, and remember it always: You failed.
Gabby Giffords’ husband, Mark Kelly, to Jared Loughner. The 24-year-old Loughner has been given 7 life sentences and 140 years in prison for killing 6 and injuring 13 in a shooting rampage last year. Giffords was shot in the head but survived; Loughner pled guilty three months ago to 19 federal charges and has no possibility of parole. source

Via Mediaite, part of the Gabby Giffords interview. To have come so far in such a short time is amazing. Giffords says she will not return to Congress until she is “better.” But the way she jokes with her husband Mark, as well as with Diane Sawyer (whose hair she fixes), definitely shows that she’s far closer to “better” than anyone could’ve imagined.
