GABBY GIFFORDS COMES HOME TO TUCSON ON JANUARY 8TH SHOOTING VICTIMS NEVER TO BE FORGOTTEN
GABBIE GIFFORDS CAME HOME TONIGHT. Gabby climbed a stage and waved to friends, fans and thousands of supporters who turned out on a cool desert evening to see the night lite up by her smile. They were not disappointed. Gabby Giffords did just that and everybody loved it. The Candlelight Ceremony held on the University of Arizona Mall began by lighting a candle for each shooting victim and then thousands of Tucsonans waved glow sticks as a choir entertained and soon the Congress women’s favorite band Calexico took the stage and gave the glow sticks a south of the border beat. Sunday night’s ceremony concluded several weeks of memorials, the dedication of the Gabe Zimmerman Trails in Davidson Canyon was Saturday and earlier Sunday afternoon there was a memorial ceremony at Centennial Hall to remember each of the six deaths. The Fund for Civility, Respect and Understanding held the REFLECTIONS Ceremony .
Serenity Hammrich and Jamie Stone for Christina-Taylor Green spoke for their best friend Christina-Taylor Green the eight year old shot at the Congress on Your Corner gathering January 8th 2011 with eighteen other people.
