Gabrielle Giffords Special On ABC Tonight

Again, from Facebook:

I can’t wait to watch the Gabby Giffords special tonight. She was a close friend of my father’s, who acted as sort of a media advisor to her and made sure I got her Congressional office emails regularly. She couldn’t attend his Feb. 2009 funeral (God, it’s still hard to write that) because the President was in Phoenix; Dad might well have been at the grocery store with her last January. My mother’s friend, the judge, was killed that day.

I’m sorry that some friends found me a little “off” that day. I’m sorry that I collapsed into my younger son’s arms that day. I’m sorry that I felt guilty that I thanked the Lord Jesus that Dad wasn’t alive to know about all of this; I’m not sorry that I was glad he couldn’t have been there at that Safeway.

So yeah — it’s kind of personal, and Gabby’s one hell of a woman. I’ll be stocked up on Kleenex, and Jeff’s on stand-by …
