Daniel Hernandez, the intern who stayed with Giffords until paramedics arrived, also issued a statement, this one to the Huffington Post:
12. More than just a number. It is people who through no fault of their own lost their lives tragically last night. It is too easy to let the number become that just another statistic. Take a moment today to honor their memory not by pausing and having a moment of silence but instead by doing something. Anything that will help others. Donate, volunteer, act.
