Gabrielle Giffords Leads Inspiring Pledge of Allegiance at Democratic National Convention

by at . Comments

Former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords made a return to the political stage last night, leading the pledge of allegiance at the Democratic National Convention.

Giffords, who left Congress in January to focus on her recovery from a shooting that left her grievously wounded, was greeted with thunderous applause.

She walked out with good friend and DNC chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) by her side. Watch Gabby lead the pledge below ...

Her appearance brought the Time Warner Cable Arena to their feet in an ovation that lasted more than a minute and spurred chants of "Gabby, Gabby!"

Many in the audience were visibly moved, for good reason.

Giffords delivered the pledge in a clear strong voice, her left hand holding up her right - the side left weakened by a bullet to her brain - to her heart.

She left the stage blowing kisses to the crowd, prompting another rousing ovation. President Obama's acceptance speech followed shortly thereafter.
