Mark Kelly: Willing to Meet Loughner's Parents

Posted By on Mon, Jan 17, 2011 at 11:44 AM

From ABC News and Diane Sawyer's interview with Mark Kelly:

However, when asked if Kelly would ever be willing to meet with Loughner's parents, he told Sawyer that he was open to the idea.

"I'd probably see them. You know, I don't think it's their fault. It's not the parents fault. You know, I'd like to think I'm a person that's, you know, somewhat forgiving. And, I mean, they've got to be hurting in this situation as much as much as anybody," Kelly told Sawyer.

Kelly himself is the father of two teenage girls from his first marriage, and told Sawyer that being a parent gives him a certain level of understanding.

"Gabby has two stepdaughters, and I have children. And they must, I'm sure they love their son. And they must be, you know, as distraught over this as all of us are," Kelly told Sawyer.
