Quiet Descends on Capitol as Washington Copes With Tragedy

Bill Clark/Roll Call

Nearly 40 people gathered for a vigil outside the Capitol on Saturday night, and Larson said Members are drawing closer in the tragedy’s aftermath to support their colleague and one another.

Gabrielle Giffords is a pretty extraordinary Member,” Larson said. “When someone engenders that kind of feeling amongst Members, I think there is just such a feeling of cooperation and graciousness. ... It’s the kind of thing that shows Congress at its best, to be quite frank.”
