As you no doubt have seen, there was a shooting this morning in Aurora, CO, killing 14 people and wounding at least 59 more. It is the very definition of senseless killing.
It also hits a little too close to home for me. From roughly October 2010 until October 2011 I lived about 10 minutes from that theater. I have seen more than one movie there, and have been to the mall right next to the theater at least a dozen times, probably more. I have literally driven by it hundreds of times. Suddenly, the news became far more real.
The Denver Metro area obviously is no stranger to this type of thing, after the Columbine shootings. It will bring back many bad memories for residents here. If you have any spare thoughts or prayers, please send them the way of the victims, their families, those still being treated, and those affected by it.
