We were getting ready for a house full of company this past Saturday, I had been checking in on Twitter and Facebook throughout the day just to keep in touch and distract myself from the cleaning and organizing. It had been an hour or two since I last checked in, I was completely unprepared for what I read this on my friend Hillary’s Facebook page “Gabrielle Gifford, the Democratic congresswoman apparently shot today, is on this list, her district in crosshairs”, and she then linked to an article about Sarah Palin targeting Ms. Gifford in the last election. I had never heard of Gabrielle Gifford so I was a little confused as to what my friend was referring to. I clicked over to a news site and gasped, I switched to another site just to confirm and it was true. A member of the United States House of Representatives, the people’s house, was shot at point blank range in the head by someone while talking to her constituents outside a neighborhood grocery store. Not only was she shot but by final count 19 others were shot and 6 in total were dead including a Federal Judge, a congressional staffer and a 9 year old girl who just happened to be born on 9/11/01.
Sorry Sarah, Sharon and Glenn lock and load does not work voting does.
