I went to high school in Aurora, Colorado, about two miles from the scene of the Dark Night movie massacre. My late parents' home was a mile away from the scene of the crime. My immediate family and I have attended several movies at the now infamous Aurora Mall theaters. Therefore, this recent tragedy is somewhat personal for me.
A part of me wants to ignore this tragedy and go on with my life because this is so very painful to look at this event. Several families and untold numbers of friends have lost a loved one in a seemingly senseless tragedy. Someone's husband and father is not coming home tonight and someone's child won't be there to open presents next Christmas. It's extremely hard for me to write these words without being overcome by emotion.
