(Newser) – Gabrielle Giffords is anxious to return to Washington, and she’s telling her supporters directly. The congresswoman has posted an audio message on Facebook, ABC News reports. “Hello, this is Gabby Giffords,” she says. “I miss you, I miss Tucson, the mountains, blue skies, even the heat.” She says she is "getting stronger” and promises that she will "speak better" eventually. “I want to get back to work. Representing Arizona is my honor,” she says. “I will see you real soon.” The audio post echoes comments from her ABC interview.
