The January 8, 2011 shooting in Tucson left six people dead and 13 severely wounded, including former U.S. Rep. Gabby Giffords.
Giffords was the lone gunman’s target at the meet-and-greet event outside a supermarket and was left partially paralyzed.
In commemoration of the tragedy, a ‘bell-ringing’ will be held at the Historic County Courthouse.
A memorial, called “Embrace,” located west of the courthouse in El Presidio Park, tells the lives lost and people wounded. Tucson.com

Yesterday, Gabby’s husband (Mark Kelly) was in the US Senate Chamber when the Capitol was invaded two days before
the anniversary of her being shoot. One has to wonder what was going through her head.

Tomorrow will be a special day honoring the spirit of Tucson — a celebration of unit. Click here to learn about some of the activities.

This slideshow contains some of the images I captured during the week after the tragedy. Also, you can click here for a link to Arizona Public Media, “Together We Heal.”
