NASA Boss: Having Gabby at Endeavour Launch "Represents the Triumph of Good Over Evil"

From The Hill:

Having Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) at the launch of her husband's space shuttle flight is symbolic of the "triumph of good over evil," NASA Administrator Charles Bolden said on Monday.

"It will be incredibly special to have Gabby at launch because, to me, it represents the triumph of good over evil," Bolden said at a Senate Appropriations Committee. "So I think it's incredible for the country if she's able to make it."

"I wear a bracelet for Gabby because she's a personal friend," he said while fighting back tears.
