Obama: Rep. Giffords opened eyes for 1st time since shooting

TUCSON, Arizona - Family and friends had hopeful and emotional words at the memorial service for the Arizona shooting massacre yesterday.

After a visit to Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, President Obama said she opened her eyes for the first time.

Giffords managed to also hold her husband's hand yesterday. Sen. Kristin Gillibrand was in the room visiting when it happened.

The memorial service honored the six people killed and the 13 wounded in Saturday's supermarket shooting spree.

A funeral service will be held today for 9-year-old Christina Green.
