Yesterday, outside of a supermarket is Tuscon Arizona, a gunman (men?) opened fire and shot Gabrielle Giffords, a Democratic member of the House of Representatives, and at least six other people.
This is an incredibly sad day; not only for Rep. Giffords, her family, and the people of Tuscon. This is a sad day for the Republic, and for everyone who believes in representative democracy.
There is a candlelight vigil tonight at Harvey Milk Plaza for anyone who would like to show solidarity with the victims of this tragedy
