Shock, Sadness and Frustration . . . those are the only words I can think of to describe this horrible tragedy. Below is Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) herself speaking out against hate filled rhetoric used by politicians, which can incite violence. Things need to change, they need to change now. I am terrified by the direction the extreme polarization of our country is taking us . . .
My deepest sympathies and prayers go out to the families who have lost someone and to those who were injured in this senseless act of violence. Six innocent lives have been lost, including the young life of a 9 year old girl, who had recently been elected to her school’s student council. Her name was Christina Taylor Greene and she was born September 11th 2001. No more words can be said.
