The attack on Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was horrifying and tragic. It was all the more shocking because she was doing what every good Representative does, meeting with her constituents face to face. She was not afraid to personally engage with citizens and defend her political views. While I have not worked closely with Rep. Giffords, I know that my colleagues from Arizona have great respect for her. She is known as someone who valued differing points of view and could work across party lines. My wife and I continue to pray for her recovery and for the families that lost loved ones last Saturday.
