Yesterday was the first year anniversary of the shootings that occurred in Tucson, Arizona. Six people lost their lives and 13 people maimed on that infamous day, and many more carry scars. During a visit to Tucson, State of the Re:Union asked relatives of victims and those who bore witness to this horror to write a letter to their city, reflecting on Tucson one year after this tragedy occurred.
In remembering these people, NPR aired SOTRU’s Letters to Tucson, One Year After the Shootings. It is a collection of indelible memories and thoughts from men and women recounting this day. If you missed it on NPR yesterday, you can listen to it here.
NPR’s and PRX’s State of the Re:Union will feature this fascinating city and the people who call it home in SOTRU’s 2012 season. As it is with all of the places we visit, there is a lot more than meets the eye going on in this town. With SOTRU as your personal guide, you will enjoy a spectacular journey into the intriguing city of Tuscon. Stayed tuned!
