An attack on democracy

The dreadful attack on Congresswoman Gabriella Giffords in Tuscon Arizona on Saturday has been quite rightly condemned by cross-party representatives in the US.  Irrespective of our political persuasions, this incident can only be described as a sad day for democracy. 

In an era where criticising political leaders seems en vogue, we ought to consider the risks these high profile individuals expose themselves too. 

I sincerely hope that Congresswoamn Giffords wins her battle for life and makes a full recovery too.
