A Tragedy

Captain Mark E. Kelly of the United States Navy, a Veteran of Desert Storm, and a current Astronaut is married to Congresswoman Gabrielle Gifford. Congresswoman Gifford was one of the people shot at a Tucson Arizona Safeway.  It has been reported by the Huntington News surgeons are optimistic about Congresswoman Gabrielle Gifford's recovery. There is also a report five individuals are in critical condition. The deceased are reported as Federal Judge John Roll, a Congressional Aid to Gifford, and a nine year old child. 

The political finger pointing and mud slinging have already begun on the reasons for this tragedy. What I know is a Federal Judge, who was under Federal protection by the U.S. Marshals for recent death threats, a Congressional Aid, and a nine year old child lost their lives today; while Congresswoman Gifford and five other's fight for their lives. 

My thoughts and prayers are with the families of those affected by this tragedy. My they all find peace.
