Absolutely awful news out of Arizona…

January 8, 2011

19 people were shot today at a Congressional event at a grocery store in Tuscon.   The kind of routine event that many of us have attended.

Five people are confirmed dead.  Nine are in surgery.

And Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona is gravely wounded.  Three members of her staff also shot. 

This is the kind of awful, unthinkable expression of violence that has absolutely no place in our society.  The country’s thoughts and prayers are with the citizens of Arizona, the families of the innocent victims, and with those who witnessed this horror.
