Congresswoman Giffords Looking at Pages of Harry Potter as Part of Recovery
January 19, 2011, 06:31 AM
A New York Times article about the recovery of the critically injured U.S. Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords revealed that Congresswoman Giffords has begun to show some impressive signs of progress, including looking at "pages of large-print text taken from a Harry Potter book".
Ms. Giffords was one of the victims of a shooting near Tucson, Arizona just under a fortnight ago in which six people were killed and another thirteen injured.
Thanks for the heads up Hank!
wow! that’s great! I saw the news on CNN but I never knew hp could get involved in something like this!
That’s really sweet! Its nice to see HP actually physically healing someone with their life :)
See, this book is really magical, welcome to our world Ms. Giffords! :D
It’s great that they use Harry Potter books to help aid in healing and recovery!
That is so awesome :) It should help a lot. :D
This is a really good sign, since the surgeons recently had to reconstruct her eye sockets, which were damaged in the attack.
This is wonderful! I’m glad Congresswoman Giffords is making progress, and I’m glad Harry is there to help her!
get well miss giffords. reading harry potter? I also read deathly hallows when staying in the hospital last year
thats so good…
Harry is healing……….. Get well soon Congresswoman Giffords !
HP has been a big part of my journey with a serious chronic illness that struck me in 2001. He’s helped me through very dark times. Yes, Harry is healing! I can’t imagine ever putting the books down for good. :)
I can’t believe she got shot! She seems to be such a nice woman. Get well soon, Congresswoman Giffords, and thank you for reading Harry Potter!
Yes, get well soon (a wish from the other side of the pond).
I think all hospitals should keep HP in store…while I was in the hospital last year/2 years ago, I kept having to ask my mom to bring up my books because I had nothing to do but sit there all day and read and it might just be me, but they did make me feel a lot better :) Get Well Soon Congresswoman Giffords
Yeah that’s the magic of Harry Potter. Hope she improves quickly. All the best
