Together we Thrive

Many of you have heard about the Tragedy in Tucson... and if you've read this blog before, you know I live in Tucson. Its so sad/horrible/shocking that something like this could happen. I've been glued to the TV for Gabby and victim updates since the incident on the 8th. While the shock of the situation seems to be wearing off and the healing, hope and road to recovery is more in focus I decided to visit the makeshift memorial outside University Medical Center. It will be cleaned up shortly, as Giffords is now in Houston for rehabilitation.

The Note/Prayer Box

I wrote a little note of encouragement and thanks to Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and strolled around snapping pictures.

It's amazing how many people have come and gone here, sharing their thoughts and prayers.


  1. We are on the same wave length today. I did a "Six-word Saturday" post using the memorial at Safeway.

    This is all so sad. I have also been glued to the TV.

    But together we WILL thrive.

  2. The event is tragic, not only in itself, but in the hate that's been thrown surrounding the event. I'm a patriot and understand what most "tea baggers" or constitutionalists stand for, and this is not it.

    The families of all the victims are in our prayers in hopes they all find peace to carry them beyond this affliction.

  3. Wow just read all about it....shocking! I'm amazed that Giffords survived too..AMAZING

  4. So tragic.....I can't even imagine what it was like living there and having it effect so many of your fellow neighbors. We lost so amazing people that Saturday is breaks my heart.

  5. This is a truely sad thing. Your photos really show the sentiments of the people who have visited. :(
