Prepare to shed a tear or two. It's a moving and bittersweet moment, so don't feel any shame about it.
It was a very emotional morning on the House floor today as Arizona Democratic Rep. Gabrielle Giffords formally stepped down from her position. With her family watching on from the gallery, Gabrielle handed down her resignation and offered her parting words, assisted by her friend, Democratic Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

P.S. - Before resigning, Giffords voted in favor of a bill which she introduced shortly before being shot last January. It passed unanimously, 408-0.
