I want to say first that this will NOT be a political commentary about the shooting. We have no idea yet as to why Jared Lee Loughner http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/2011-01-14-loughner-timeline_N.htm
would commit such a violent act against his country, not just Arizona. This affected all Americans such as the Oklahoma City Bombing, the McDonald's Massacre and, of course, September 11, 2001. I also will NOT be turning this blog into any more about the shooter, as he will get enough national attention and I for one, find him creepy and disturbing to look at and in no way want his picture on my blog, but feel free to click the link above for his story.
Unfortunately, the morning quickly turned to tragedy in the town of Tucson, just to the south of where I live in Phoenix.

From what I have read, according to her parents she seemed to be born "destined" into some type of politics. We have learned in the news that she was recently elected to student council at her school. How exciting for her! And what a great way to start off her new "political career" by meeting Gabby Gifford, which brought her to what would later be the place where she would lose her life, in TERROR! CHRISTINA would lose her life on a day of terrorism, just as she entered the world on a day of terrorism.
