My thoughts and prayers go out to each and everyone who was affected by the terrible events that unfolded in Tucson over the weekend.
I hear that "church" that likes to protest is planning on being at the funeral of the little girl, Christina Green, to protest. I am all for free speech but there comes a time when you need to be responsible for what you do and this is not the place to let your voice be heard. Of course that is reasonable thinking and that church is not comprised of reasonable individuals so there is no point in continuing a discussion... the only thing left to do is to take action and I understand there are LOTS of people in the Phoenix and Tucson area that are going to do just that! Thank God for them!
On another note, there has been much to do over the politizing of the shooting. I've heard reports that the shooter was a left wing nut job...ok, that's not unusual... but wait! He smoked pot! oh well then that makes ALL the difference.
The fact of the matter is the guy, no matter what political side he affiliated with, was not right in the head. He had a history of odd, disturbing behavior. Someone told me they had never heard of a Liberal going off like that... well, now you do. Or maybe you don't. The point is that it does not matter. What does matter is that there were tons of red flags out there and this guy was still able to kill and wound a lot of people. The ball was dropped; tragedy happened.
My prayers are with the people affected by this man's actions.
