In an audio recording, U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords made the following statement, her first since Jan. 8, to her fellow Southern Arizonans. The audio is posted on Giffords' Facebook page. Here's what she said:

"Hello, this is Gabby Giffords.

"I miss you. I miss Tucson, the mountains, blue skies, even the heat.

"I'm getting stronger. I'm getting better.

"It has been a hard year - for all of us. Thinking about that day makes me sad. Six people died. Six innocent people. So many people hurt.

"There is lot to say. I will speak better.

"I want to get back to work. Representing Arizona is my honor.

"My staff is there to help you. They keep me informed on your behalf.

"I miss you, I miss home. I will see you real soon.

"Thank you."
