It has taken me a few days to process all this!
The focus should be with the families, the victims and the community! For the last few days, I am thinking about how a staple of America, going to the movies turned into THIS!
In my opinion <my opinion>, it has nothing to do with the Batman movie. It could have been any movie!!!!. How many times have I just abruptly decided to go to the movies, to see a movie!
For me it ranges, from Harry Potter, Ice Age to a movie about whales in Alaska! At each showing, there are people from all walks of life. It may be a children’s movie, or children accompanying their parents, young people or the elderly.
There is the staff at the theatres who are working, some college students or perhaps those coming in for the day looking for a job or even people getting the matinée to receive a discount. It may be a person who wanted popcorn and enjoyment of the free refills!
The movies represents people, ordinary people taking the time out of their busy day to enjoy! With their families and friends. That’s ALL!
And here taking this forum of relief, one person decides to make an agenda to create pure mayhem for over 220 people!!!!!
With the intent to harm more! #%)@&%&@) crazy and absolutely unacceptable! I am so upset about it, because it is too close! It could have been in my community or it could have been in yours! It’s so sad!
I refused to write anything more about this person who caused such hysteria, fear and sadness – is it important to know WHY? For some it maybe, for me is to now focus on the families, friends and victims whose lives have been changed!
So with that, I am going to keep praying for comfort for all affected and for those who have survived to push on!
If you are interested, you can contribute to the Aurora Relief Fund; which is being used to give any aid required by victims and their loved ones.
The Aurora Victim Relief Fund will help defray some of that expense. The full list of non-profits in the network is available at the GivingFirst.org site.
With thoughts and prayers,
