Giffords speaks to southern Arizona constituents

U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords is speaking to her southern Arizona constituents, telling them in a recorded message that she’s anxious to get back to work and she misses her home.

Giffords’ office says the minute long message was recorded last week in Houston where the three-term congresswoman has been undergoing rigorous rehabilitation therapy for 10 months.

The message was released Tuesday on Giffords’ Facebook page. She says in the message that she’s getting stronger and better. Speaking in a clear but stilted voice, she adds that representing Arizona is an honor.

Giffords was shot in the head on Jan. 8 while meeting with constituents at a shopping center in Tucson. Six people were killed in the shooting and 13 others, including Giffords, were wounded.
