Cut Saguaro Ten Years Out   3 comments

I took this image in September 2011 while on my first Sabino Canyon Volunteer Naturalists (SCVN) nature walk. 
I was so appalled that someone cut off the top of this young (probably 35-40 years old) saguaro cactus.

Sadly, over the years, I have frequently seen this type of vandalism.

Nature uses only the longest threads to weave her patterns,
so that each small piece of her fabric reveals
the organization of the entire tapestry.

The Tucson Shooting — Ten Years Out   3 comments

Outside Gabby Giffords’ Office after the January 8, 2011 Shooting in Tucson — Images by kenne

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.
