Former congresswoman Gabby Giffords spoke just 71 words today during the Senate Judiciary Committee’s hearing on gun control. They were 71 powerful words.
“Thank you for inviting me here today. This is an important conversation for our children, for our communities, for Democrats and Republicans.
Speaking is difficult. But I need to say something important. Violence is a big problem. Too many children are dying. Too many children. We must do something.
It will be hard, but the time is now. You must act. Be bold, be courageous, Americans are counting on you.” — Gabby Giffords
