Hi .... just finding my way back to these boards. I am really curious what everyone's thoughts are on the AZ shooting of Congresswoman Giffords and the bystanders at this event in Tucson over the weekend. Obviously it's a tragedy with the killing of the judge and the 9 year old girl. I heard this little girl was interested in politics... so sad and it really makes me angry that someone would do this. My heart goes out to all the victims and their families. I haven't heard an update on the other victims, but know several were wounded.
This whole weekend has been filled with speculation online and constant news reports and I am not really sure what to think about it. People are saying that Sarah Palin's PAC could be to blame? I am not sure... I think the whole tone of politics right now is really horrible, from the politcians to just every day people. I guess it's good for people to have passion but not sure this leads to betterment of society or understanding. And in the end, I don't know if we can really point fingers for a tragedy like this? It sounds like the shooter was really unhinged. I will be curious to see if this event improves or even worsens "the rhetoric" in this country. Can anyone make sense of all of this?
