By now most folks with internet or radio or TV News probably know that Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was shot this morning in Tucson at a community event at a Safeway grocery store. Current reports have at least 13 people wounded in this tragedy and 6 dead. Among the dead, a 9 year-old child and a federal judge.

What is not in the news yet is that among the dead is Dorwin Stoddard who threw himself in front of his wife Mavy to keep her from being shot. She was wounded in her legs. Dorwin was a member of the Church of Christ.
