BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. ROTHMAN of New Jersey. Madam Speaker, I rise today to join my colleagues in recognizing my friend, Congresswoman GABRIELLE GIFFORDS, members of her staff, and other victims of the senseless attack which took place on January 8, 2011 in Tucson, Arizona.

GABBY is kind, brilliant, beautiful, charming, intellectually curious, honest, and a powerful presence. She is truly one of the most amazing people I've met in my life. She is devoted to public service for all the right reasons--to make America stronger, safer, better-educated and to protect America from its enemies. She is thoroughly dedicated to her district and selflessly serves her constituents. Her constituents, even those who do not always share her political views, respect her for being ready to help them and fight for what is right. I know my colleagues on both sides of the aisle recognize her as a person of great integrity who fights tirelessly for her principles.

Madam Speaker, my thoughts at this time are with my friend GABBY. We are all hoping and praying for her complete recovery, as well as for the families of those who were killed and those who were wounded and are struggling to recover. Violence and threats have no place in our democracy.
