Jared Loughner's family has been on my heart since the events in Tucson last week. I hope they are cared for - getting meals, rides, and support - from those in the community. I cannot imagine the pain they must all be suffering. If a child or a sibling of mine had done something like this, I would be crippled for life. A priest friend of mine wrote this at my request that we pray for Jared and his family. Please share in private or with friends.

May the souls of those who died rest in peace; may the wounded recover; may all the families affected in any way be led into deeper relationship with the Holy One; may Jared get the care he needs; and may our country recognize it's own woundedness in all of this and take whatever steps are needed for healing and wholeness.

I'm not one to pray, but, in this case I have to say, Amen. That's quite moving.

I'm not much of a pray-er myself. Jared's family shouldn't be picked on, but Jared, he killed a judge. He should have the full force of the law thrown at him. That's my opinion.

He killed a child and several others as well. Loughner is a demon. Pray for his family. But pray for the families of his victims as well. They did nothing to deserve this. As far as Jared goes, I pray that he seeks forgivness, then I pray for justice.

The Thom Hartmann Program - Aug 30th 2018

It seems it's all racism, all the time w/the GOP...Neo-Nazi robocall hits Iowa on Molly Tibbett’s murder: “KILL THEM ALL. ” Richard Wolff drops by about the National Debt. Is it a disaster or an OK thing? Also - Trump & The National Enquirer - Is the Economy Here To Serve Us Or Are We Here to Serve the economy?
