A Day of Mourning for Tucson

No posts today.

Today we remember:

The Honorable John Roll, 63, Presiding Judge, United States District Court for the District of Arizona

Mr. Gabriel Zimmerman, 30, Director of Community Outreach for Hon. Giffords, M.C.

Rev.Dorwin Stoddard, 76, Pastor at Mountain Avenue Church of Christ, who died protecting his wife

Mrs. Dorothy Morris, 76

Mrs. Phyllis Scheck, 79

Miss Christina Green, 9, born on 9/11/2001, who was there to learn about politics.

God grant rest and eternal memory to them all.

And may God grant full healing to the wounded, including Rep. Giffords, who may face the toughest recovery of all those injured in this evil deed. God grant comfort to the families of the lost and the wounded.

And God grant healing, mercy and the wisdom to be silent to the rest of us today.

Please forgive me for offering this pagan hymn of death, but there is little hope to be had as of this moment.

Christ have mercy.

  1. My condolences to all victims and survivors. I was deeply touched by the death of 9 year old girl who was born on 9/11.
