I’ve asked her if I could share her impressions with you and she’s agreed. I too find them remarkable and agree that it appears probable that Rep. Giffords is destined to recover. (Not like I know because I don’t.) I should add that I consider Loughener to be mind-controlled and the event designed to strike fear in us.
THE SYNCHRONICITES. OMG! THE SYNCHRONICITIES! You had to be deaf, dumb and blind not to see them. Using Lauren’s term, the “unseens” could not stop the shooting (after reading David, I get this) but man did they put everyone and everything in place.
First of all “White Knights” came out of the woodwork. (None of them want to be called heroes.) A doctor went with his wife to the grocery store – he never does that. There was another doctor there. People just took care of other people. No question of stepping up to the plate. Even the injured stepped up.
The first ones on scene were policemen who said to a man/woman, yes there was carnage but it was silent. You heard no screaming or crying out. They could not believe that people were being tended to by strangers – other human beings. This wasn’t chance. You know it was not chance with Daniel Hernandez. He had been Gabby’s intern for 5 days and had emergency medical training. He is credited with making Gabby’s head wound less than was expected. Chance? Not on your life.
Then, as the crow flies (or should I say helicopter), it is about 2 miles from the grocery store to the hospital. The doctor in charge of the trauma team, Dr. Rhee, had extensive experience in Iraq and Afghanistan. Because of Gabby, University Medical Center (UMC) is a Level 1 trauma center and the only one in southern Arizona.
That’s not all. Patricia Diane Cota-Robles lives here on the east side. She had started a memorial service for her son at 10am that morning – the shootings were at 10:10 – so love and light were already pouring into the city. AA Michael’s etheric city is here and, of course, Susan & I called on him right away.
Then Sheriff Clarence Dupnik started the national discussion on having humane discussions and disagreements. (Gabby’s opponent in her last race held an event stating take Gabby out of office come shoot an M-16 with me.) Then THE MAN – Obama – shows up (was thinking of standing in line but when I heard people had been in line since the night before, figured I had a better seat at home.)
The outpouring of love – a memorial started at UMC and Gabby’s office – and random acts of kindness. At the request of Gabby, donate to charity. The Community Food Bank has received donations from all over the world. A trust fund was started so that anyone who was injured or lost loved ones and needed financial help, there would be funds available to them. And it just goes on and on. Even I participated in a healing gesture with women I did not know, ended up being the recipient of this outpouring and synchronicities taking place.
This could or should have been worse and it wasn’t. Everyone here is being kinder and gentler to one another. I believe we are setting an example for the rest of the country. My intuition for now is telling me Gabby is going to completely recover.
