And also, via Kamy, a message from EMILY's List:

I invite you to visit WeSupportGabby.com, where you can directly send a personal message to Gabby and her family. You'll also find links to Gabby's favorite charities, as shared by her husband Mark Kelly, and ways to show your support through Facebook and Twitter. As debate and recrimination rage around us, we can make sure that we honor what is most precious to us: Gabby's desire to serve and her total commitment to her community and her constituents.

In the face of such immense tragedy, it's only natural to feel overwhelmed, saddened, and even helpless. But believe me: we've talked with Gabby's incredible staff, and every bit of support means the world. Right now, we must take time to feel grief, to ensure that everyone affected by this heinous event knows we're standing with them, and to never, ever back down from the ideals most precious to us: democracy, equal representation, and the importance of public service.

I am honored to be a part of this community. Thank you for everything.

Sincerely,

Stephanie Schriock
