Colorado Massacre

For those of you who don't know, early this morning there was a massacre at the Dark Knight Rises premier in Aurora, Colorado. As of now, 12 people were killed and 71 total were wounded. The man had on a bullet proof vest and gas mask and his weapons included tear gas and two guns. 

First, I want to say that my thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families. This is a tragedy, one that never should have happened. I was at my movie theater from 7 till 3 watching a marathon of all three movies. I can't even begin to think what it would have been like had that been my theater. I cannot even begin to understand how those who were there must feel, but know that we are praying for you. 

But we cannot let this one act of violence cow us into submission. I already know people who are absolutely terrified of going to the theater now. Don't let that happen. Do not let this one man make us fall. We are Americans. United we stand. We cannot let him scare us and make us afraid to live our lives. Instead we must rise up against it. We must show him that we are strong. There are many good people in this world, and if we stand together, we can show those that want to hurt us that they cannot. 


  1. I couldn't believe this story when I heard it. I'll never understand what possesses people to do things like this. I'll admit, it has me thinking twice about going to a theater.

    1. Me neither. It's definitely shocking. It does make me think, but I've chosen to no let it dictate my life. The chances of that happening are definitely slim and I don't want to let it scare me. If I was scared of everything that happened like that I'd never go anywhere! But I'll definitely be more aware.


So what did y'all think? I'd love to know your opinions :)
