We are all stunned by the events of yesterday, the shooting of a sitting Congresswomen, Gabby Giffords and seventeen others; six of whom died to include a nine year old girl and a sitting Federal Judge.  We do not know the reasons yet.  Is the heated political rhetoric a factor, the conventional wisdom says it was.  Is this a case of an individual with serious problems–perhaps.  We will not know more for many days as law enforcement seeks to find the answers.  All we can do is pray for the repose of the dead and the recovery of Representative Giffords and the others.  Comments from around the world: Sunday Telegraph; the Guardian; Frankfurter Zeitung; The Australian; Kuwait Times; and Mail and Guardian South Africa.  Here is a link to The World Newspapers if you want to find other views.
