Where we go from here: pray, respect, listen

[I]t is a time to pray for the victims -- and to pledge to each other that we will struggle for a more civil and decent America.
David Gergen, on CNN
We ought to cool it, tone it down, treat each other with great respect, respect each other's ideas and even on difficult issues, like immigration, or taxes, or health care laws, do our best not to inflame passions.
Tennessee Senator Lamar Alexander, on CNN
The ability to listen and the ability to be wise... the ability to listen to people of all generations, to coo with a baby and commiserate with a senior citizen who can barely walk.
Rep. Gabrielle ("Gabby") Giffords' rabbi, Stephanie Aaron, describing Giffords to the New York Times
