Tragedy has stuck Colorado once again. I woke up in the middle of the night to send an email that was on my mind and I decided to check Facebook real quick. The most Recent Story was my local news channel reporting the theater shooting in Aurora, Colorado at the midnight premiere of Batman. Then I see my cousin posted about it and was listening to the police scanners.
How terrible a tragedy.
People innocently celebrating the return of an all time Super Hero. My heart hurts when I think of the jovial mood… the young kids and teens, the young adults. I am sure happiness filled the air. Then all of it shattered in an instant.
71 people shot, 12 dead.
Some were dressed up in costumes, they were so vulnerable, nobody could have ever seen this coming. So what do we do? What is the most important thing we can do? PRAYER of course. Prayer for the victims who are dealing with injuries, the witnesses who will be scarred for life, the families of the departed ones, the responders… and our Nation.
