I am very saddened by the news that came out of Auror, CO the other night. Those tragic events, a man going into the theatres and killing innocent people for no reason. A man, miserable with his own life that he would go so far as to kill people he didn’t even know. A man so out of it, that he would open fire on innocent children. It’s one thing to open fire on adults, but it’s another to open fire on a 9 year old child.
My heart goes out to the families and friends of the victims of this horrible event. I cannot put into words how heart broken I am for those who have a loved on in the hosipital or dead. Words cannot, and will not be able to describe the events and the fact that thousands of people naton wide are grieving alongside those in Aurora, CO. I, myself, am grieving alongside those in Aurora, CO.
I cannot put myself in their shoes. I was not in Aurora, CO at the time, nor do I have family or friends in Aurora, but no, and I mean no one, deserves to go through the events that happened late Thursday night.
I have a brother who worked for a local movie theater, and I ask myself, what this horrific event happened at his theater…what if he was one of the ones shot…how would I feel? I cannot put into words the emotions that went through my head Friday morning when I woke up. Thinking that it could have been someone that I love and someone that I know, my brain cannot even wrap around that thought.
There are no words that I can say that can make this better…there are no words that I can say to get people to stop thinking about these events, nor are there words I can say to comfort people during this time. All I can say is that we, as a nation, need to stand together and pray for our neighbors in Aurora. We need to stand together as ONE nation, under GOD and pray that justice is served. We need to stand together, and hold the hands of those friends and families of the victims….
My prayers go out to Aurora, CO.
