What could possibly be worse than getting a phone call to come to a hospital because your spouse wife, or your son or your daughter has been shot by a madman and may not make it?
Getting a phone call telling you that your child was the shooter.
I frankly don’t want to argue about which is worse. They must both be indescribable levels of hell.
Awful for everyone concerned.
But how good that doctors believe Gabrielle Giffords is going to live.
She’ll need lots of prayers for the hard road before her.
God help us all. Everyone gets a turn in the crucible, one way or another.

UPDATE: Andrew Malcolm has touching pictures from Gabrielle Giffords’ husband
UPDATE II: The news that there was a disruption in this family before the shootings only adds to the poignant note of regret in that statement. And it makes me think this post could not be more timely
