Gifford shares message at RIT

Henrietta, N.Y. Former Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and her husband, Mark Kelly, spoke at RITs Brick City Homecoming Weekend Saturday.

Giffords survived a gunshot wound to the head at a speaking event in Tucson, Ariz., in January 2011.

Since then, she and her husband wrote a bestselling memoir, and also toured the country advocating for stricter gun control.

They shared a message of inspiration Saturday.

I am a prime example of someone who was able to overcome a lack of aptitude with practice, persistence and the drive to never, ever, ever give up, said Kelly, a retired astronaut.

Im still fighting to make the world a better place, and you can, too, Giffords said. Be passionate, be courageous, be your best."
