The Hill Life: A Moment of Silence

As you know, I usually post at 11:00AM.  I write about shoes, purses, makeup and the fashion sins of a legion of staffers.  But not today.

Right now, the nation is observing a moment of silence for Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, her staffers, and all the people injured and killed in Tucson.  

Judge John Roll
Christina Taylor Green
Gabe Zimmerman
Phyllis Schneck
Dorwan Stoddard
Dorothy Morris

Some were notable, others were unknown, but each one was special to someone.  Somebody loved them, laughed with them, hoped to see them again, and now they’re gone.  I hope that their legacy will extend beyond this tragedy.
