TIME Magazine interviews Rep. Gabrielle Giffords

Dan Winters
In their latest issue, TIME Magazine interviews Rep. Gabrielle Giffords on her remarkable recovery after the devastating shooting last January. She talks about her marriage, her views on death,  and whats next for her.

An excerpt from the Q&A.

What's an average day like for you these days? 
Busy, busy, busy. Stretching at 6:30 a.m. Up at 7 a.m. Breakfast and read the Arizona Daily Star, Arizona Republic and New York Times. Drive to rehab at 8 a.m. Physical, occupational and speech therapy for most of the day. Home, dinner and watch The Daily Show. Then off to bed.

Are you religious? If so, did that help you through this experience? 
Yes, I am. Of course it did.

You have two stepdaughters, Claire and Claudia. Your book says your relationship with them has improved this year. Why? 
I nearly died. That drew us much closer together.
