Gabrielle Giffords Shot

I was sewing this morning and heard breaking news on the radio that Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was shot.

They didn’t say shot to death, but it was just confirmed she was shot in the head. Two people are dead, allegedly, and ten–twelve were transported by air to local hospitals. Someone with a semi-automatic weapon stormed a Safeway parking-lot town-hall public relations event, where the Representative was meeting constituents, and opened fire.

Well, now they’re reporting the Congresswoman is dead.

I really hate living in a world where such hateful violence is so widespread. When I heard the news 90 minutes ago I called a handful of friends, even the RN manager of the NICU where I work (she understands crisis management, like I do).

Now I just feel very depressed.
