Scottsdale, Ariz. – Congressman David Schweikert (R-AZ) made the following statement in remembrance of the one year anniversary of the Tucson tragedy:
“A year ago today, an assault on our democracy and those participating in it, left our Arizona community with deep wounds.
“But Arizonans have turned our sense of grief into a sense of resolve. We will continue the work of our democracy, moving forward with the memory of those we lost and gratitude for those who are still with us.
“Joyce and I are grateful for the progress Rep. Giffords has made thus far. Though still with heavy hearts, we join hands in continued prayers for healing for the families of those we lost and we urge all Arizonans and Americans to do the same.”
