This was the vigil outside of the University Medical Center where Gabby Giffords is currently being cared for.

You know the "Peace Not Crosshairs" sign? My friend, his girlfriend and I watched the woman who made it take it down. My friend and I approached her after she took it and he asked her why she was taking it down. She then explained to us that it was her sign and that she made it while she was angry, and after seeing it on the news and on websites all week she started to feel a little different about it. And after Obama's speech at the memorial event, she didn't feel as angry anymore. She told us that "it was time to forgive".

I just felt I would share that with everybody.
