While I was living my life as usual, working 9 hours on Saturday,a fast stop at the grocery then home for dinner and an evening spent watching old shows on the BBC, sad things were happening in our country.
This morning as I was up and about drinking my lattes, caramelizing sugar for a dinner party tonight, giving the house a fast spiff up and loving life in general, people were mourning, others pointing fingers, others living in fear.
I picked up the newspaper at 2:00pm and read about the shooting in Arizona yesterday. A federal judge killed, a Congresswoman hospitalized after being shot in the head, a 6 year old girl killed, the only girl on her little league baseball team. She had an interest in politics and wanted to meet Congresswoman Gifford.
The congresswoman was listed on Sarah Palin's Crosshairs map last year. Targeted for her vote on health care.
This is not a political blog, but I can't not comment on this horrific event. My prayers go out to all the families of the 6 victims of these insane times we are living in.
My dinner party will carry on and I'm sure there will be much discussion concerning the shootings and the hatred that lies behind them.
My friend Webb is correct, let's pray for the peace keepers. They need all the help we can give them.
