He who learns must suffer.

Even in our sleep, pain which cannot forget
falls drop by drop upon the heart,
until, in our own despair,
against our will,
comes wisdom
through the awful grace of God.

-Robert F. Kennedy, quoting Aeschylus, 4/4/68

Rest in peace, Rep. Gabby Giffords.

UPDATE:  Thank God for erroneous news reports.  She's clinging to life, and her doctors are optimistic.
