I feel sick to my stomach. Praying.
I pray for Rep. Giffords, the other victims, and their families. I'm mad and deeply saddened that this violence is an attack not just against these innocent people, but also does real damage to all things good about our country and our democracy. And no criminal punishment will be able to fix it.
