Obama calls Giffords on day of vigil marking one year since shooting rampage

Tucson, Arizona (CNN) - Rep. Gabrielle Giffords talked with President Barack Obama on Sunday, the one-year anniversary of a southern Arizona shooting rampage that left her and 12 others wounded and six people dead.

The congresswoman will be among those marking the somber occasion by attending a vigil Sunday night on University of Arizona's campus, one of several such memorial events in recent days.

    Such a tragedy and I'm glad that Ms. Giffords is recovering well. I wonder if Sarah Palin stops to think and remember the anniversary of the tragic shootings that her constant talk about guns and shooting may have helped to encourage the shooter.
