What I know
Six years ago in Tucson, Arizona, a shooter opened fire on a group of constituents gathered to speak with their representative, Gabrielle Giffords. Six were killed, and more than a dozen others—including Rep. Giffords—were injured. One of the survivors reflects on her experience—and how access to health care has made all the difference for her recovery.
I know that time does stand still.
I know that total strangers will put themselves in danger to save the lives of others.
I know that it is possible to watch the light go out of another person's eyes. I do not know if it is possible to live with that knowledge. I do know that I will try.
I know that I’m only walking now because of Obamacare.
