In light on the recent violence in Arizona, I thought it important to share something I'm sure alot of youy have already read/heard, but it still needs to be said and I thought it would be appropriate here in the Politics Lounge, where so many differing opinions debate and sometimes clash. This is a quote from Rep. Giffords' brother-in-law, who is an Astronaut with NASA. He was aboard the International Space Station (ISS) when the shooting occurred and he remains there until the completion of his mission. Anyway, his thoughts on the subject have hit me particularly hard and I feel he spoke the serious truth I suspect we all believe in the backs of our minds. I am doing EVERYTHING in my power to live the remainder of my life in a way that makes me a better person for myself and those around me. I hope others can find the same common ground we all desperately need to ensure the preservation of the human race. Seriously! I want to do better! I WILL try to do better!
