If you watch TV, if you read the papers, if you get your news online...then you have stress in your life. That's only one facet of our lives, add the normal day to day stresses of work, family, finances, relationships and it's enough to get anyone down. I'm heartbroken over the attack on those in Tucson this past weekend. Senseless deaths, gone now are people who were living life to the fullest and contributing to our society. It could have been even worse, but heroic bystanders took the shooter down, risking their own lives. Roger Salzgeber and Bill Badger tackled Loughner, Joseph Zamudio pinned his legs and Patricia Maisch who grabbed the magazine from Loughner’s weapon. Giffords intern Daniel Hernandez used his first-aid training to keep the Congresswoman alive until paramedics could arrive.
It causes us all to breathe uneasy now. Afraid to participate in free speech at public gatherings, it stifles us as Americans. Our country needs God's help to heal and His guidance to overcome the mess we are in. Almost like a panic attack, I feel the need to breathe in and breathe out...I'm very worried about our nation.
