The Aurora movie theatre shooting is unbelievable. Why do people do this? How does someone lose their way so much that they result to ending the lives of others? It was bad enough that school became an unsafe place to send your children in 1999 but now, going to see a movie?!?
12 people lost their lives and close to 40 people are injured, one of which was a 3 month old baby. The gunman has now been named and as we speak bomb squads are cautiously navigating their way into his "booby trapped" apartment. His actions are inexcusable and heartless. As more is uncovered about this 24 year old suspect it will be interesting to learn how he got to this destructive place.
Today is a somber day not only in Colorado, but across the nation as an event like this brings an outpouring of support and compassion. My heart goes out to the victims and their families. My heart goes out to the people that were there and may not have been physically injured but are now left shaken and traumatized.
Hug your family. Call your family and friends that aren't nearby to hug. Talk to your children. Talk to one another. Pay attention to those people you may know that are losing their way, and tell someone you trust that their may be something wrong. Be kind. Be compassionate.
Such a tragedy...
