Please Remember The Victims Of The Shooting In Arizona

The dead in yesterday's deadly shooting include:

John M. Roll, 63, a federal district court judge who was appointed by George Bush senior in 1991

Gabriel Zimmerman, 30, Giffords' director of community outreach. Gabriel was Giffords's community outreach worker, who organized the gathering on Saturday that was billed as a "Congress on Your Corner".

Dorwin Stoddard, 76. Mr Stoddard was said to have been shot in the head as he tried to protect his wife, who was wounded.

Christina-Taylor Green, 9, a student at Mesa Verde Elementary. Christina, one of six who died in Saturday's shooting, had been featured in the book, "Faces of Hope, Babies Born on 9/11" about children born on the day of the worst terrorist attack in U.S. history.

Dorthy Murray, 76 was known to her friends as "Dot," was a retired homemaker and secretary. She and her husband of 50 years had been high school sweethearts.

Phyllis Schneck, 79. Was a retired homemaker and church volunteer. She is survived by her three children, seven grandchildren and one great-grandchild.

In addition to the six deaths, 13 people were wounded in the melee.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to these victims who were killed and injured, as well as their families. President Obama is calling for a moment of silence on Monday, 11 a.m. ET, to honor Arizona shooting victims
