The Associated Press
TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) – In what could be one of her last acts in office, Rep. Gabrielle Giffords has met with other survivors and supporters more than a year after gunfire interrupted a spontaneous meet-and-greet session.
The meeting occurred Monday in the Tucson office of Giffords, who announced Sunday that she intends to resign from Congress this week to concentrate on recovering from the assassination attempt that shook the country.
Among those who met Monday with Giffords was Pat Maisch, who was hailed as a hero for wrestling a gun magazine from the shooter.
Maisch, who was not injured herself, says it was touching that Giffords finished the meeting that was interrupted
She also says she would love to see Giffords continue in office but understands that she needs to take care of herself.
