You have probably heard about the attempted assassination of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona. So many people died yesterday in an act of senseless violence. So many lives completely destroyed.
We have seen political discourse in this country toss around violent imagery for far too long.
To quote from MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann:
“The man who fired today did not fire at a Democratic congresswoman and her supporters… he fired today into our liberty and our rights to live and agree or disagree in safety and freedom from fear that our support or opposition will cost us our lives or our health or our sense of safety.”
I encourage you to watch the entire special comment from Olbermann about this. Here is the link: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/3036677/#40983401
