the kindest of hearts….

The Guardian: The astronaut husband of Gabrielle Giffords .. indicated today he would be prepared to meet with the parents of the alleged gunman to express his forgiveness.

Mark Kelly … said he probably would see the parents of Jared Lee Loughner, who has been charged with the massacre in which six people died and 14 were wounded.

In an interview with Diane Sawyer of ABC … Kelly said he had empathy for the parents. “You know, I don’t think it’s their fault. It’s not the parents’ fault. I’d like to think I’m a person that’s somewhat forgiving. And they’ve got to be hurting in this situation as much as anybody.”

Kelly, the father of two teenage girls from his previous marriage, said: “I have children. And they must, I’m sure they love their son. And they must be as distraught over this as all of us are.”

…Today Giffords’ condition was upgraded from critical to serious. Kelly told ABC his wife was responding to comments and had spent 10 minutes giving him a neck massage.

“I’m like, Gabby, you’re in the ICU. You know, you don’t need to be doing this. But it’s so typical of her that no matter how bad the situation might be for her, she’s looking out for other people.”
