The world is still reeling from the tragic events that took place early Friday morning in Aurora, Colorado. A scene you would only expect to find in a movie made its way into real life when a lone gunman, who doesn’t deserve to be named, walked into the midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises at the town’s Century 16 theater and began firing shots into the audience. In the end, twelve people lost their lives and dozens were injured; I’ve seen counts as high as 70.
I discovered the story around 5:30 a.m. on Friday and my heart fell into my stomach. I saw the news on Facebook, and suddenly all the other status updates became hollow. Suddenly, I didn’t care what anyone else was doing.
What happened the rest of the day has had a profound effect on me. I learned some things, was reminded of some things, and I hope they remain with me for the future.
