Tucson memorial service helps begin healing process

The University of Arizona is preparing to host a community memorial service tonight, one of many services to remember the victims of Saturday’s deadly shooting.

A memorial mass at St. Odelia last night gave the community a chance to release emotions.

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer was at the site of a growing memorial on the hospital lawn.

“There is no way to measure what Tucson and all of Arizona lost in that moment. The statistics: 6 dead, 14 wounded in no way explain the depths of this tragedy,” said Governor Brewer.

Obama Visits Giffords Ahead of Memorial Service

As thousands lined up Wednesday for a memorial service in Tucson, President Obama visited Rep. Gabrielle Giffords in the hospital along with other victims in Saturday’s shooting attack that left six dead and 14 wounded.

“The president wanted to begin this solemn trip by stopping first at the hospital where Congresswoman Giffords and others continue to recuperate,” White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said.

Obama is expected to remember the victims and heroes of the tragedy in his speech at the memorial service. The speech is expected to last for 16 to 18 minutes.

“The president will devote a significant portion of his remarks to the memory of the victims,” Gibbs said. “He’ll also reflect on how all of us might best honor their memory in our own lives.”
