Something Good: Rep. Gabrielle Giffords Smiling, Talking 11 Months After Shooting

When Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords woke up in a rehab hospital in Houston weeks after she was shot by her attacker, Giffords stared off into the distance, seemingly unaware of where or who she was. No one knew if she would ever speak or walk again.

That moment, so full with hope and despair, was recorded by her husband, Mark Kelly, who documented much of her effort to battle back from her catastrophic head wound. She had to relearn even reflex motions as small as nodding her head. At her lowest point, Giffords was not even able to smile.

Now, for the first time since the attack at a Tucson supermarket, Giffords speaks publicly — doing her best to sum up the nine months of pain and rehabilitation she’s endured.

Watch Gabrielle Giffords and Mark Kelly Share Their Story with Diane Sawyer Exclusively on Monday, Nov. 14 at 10 p.m. ET / 9 p.m. CT on ABC.
