Earlier today, Paddy posted Gabby Giffords statement at the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on preventing gun violence. If you watched that without tearing up, then watch it again, this time with a box of tissues nearby.

And if that fails to choke you up, check out her handwritten notes for her testimony. They were posted at the Facebook page for Gabby Giffords' PAC, the Americans for Responsible Solutions:

"We must do something. It will be hard." Understatement.

"Be courageous." Gabby Giffords speaks from experience.
