Our Tucson community is still healing after that horrendous mass shooting incident on January 8, 2011 outside of the Safeway supermarket at the SE corner of Ina/Oracle Rd. Please join in this community wide effort to remember the victims, the survivors, the first responders, the medical staff who helped the 19 victims of that day. Democrat Ron Barber is now the Congressman from District 2, and former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords and her retired astronaut husband Mark Kelly have moved back to Tucson. And best wishes to the other survivors of that Tucson Tragedy shooting, may they continue to heal and find peace in 2013.
The January 8th Memorial Foundation is trying to create an appropriate permanent memorial of that shooting. Contact the President of the Board of Directors if you have input, or
