Washington, DCNevada Senator Harry Reid released the following statement today following passage of a Senate resolution honoring Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and the victims and heroes of the Tucson shooting:

“I join my colleagues today in honoring Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and all of the victims of the tragedy in Tucson earlier this month. I am encouraged by the improvements in her condition, and hope for her continued speedy recovery. She is an inspiring example of the human spirit persevering through extreme tragedy. Today is also a time to remember those who lost their lives during an event that should have been a testament to our democracy, a discussion between a dedicated public servant and her constituents. I express my deep condolences to the families of those who lost loved ones and commend the men and women who showed the best in us by stepping up to prevent an even greater tragedy. My thoughts are with all Arizonans today as they continue to mourn and begin the healing process.”
