The release of Gabby Giffords photo on her facebook page, started the phone ringing. Lots of people called just because they wanted to talk. Gabby’s picture had given people hope, the belief that good things can happen, even in these seemingly dark days. Gabby’s constituents in Tucson had created three shrines; one at the shooting site, another was in front of Giffords’ offices and the third, in front of UMC where Gabby had been treated immediately after the shooting.  When she was transferred to Houston .via private jet, supporters stood on the curb lining her route to the airport and yelled their best wishes.  When this picture was released, she was meeting with her doctors with her mother Gloria and her cheerful personality was bubbling out and everyone was having fun.  This picture captures Gabby cheerful spirit, something all her friends and supporters recognize, and it reassured her public, that she was on the mend. The release of Gabby’s photo on my website brought more than 3,000 hits to in 48 hours, yielding 10,500 page views from 47 different countries.
