    Val, I was just headed here to start a thread about the same. I just read about this. What a terrible tragedy! To think, all of those people were just out to see a movie, and many of their lives are over, may end as a result of serious injuries, or may never be the same.

    Every single time I hear these stories.. I realize how many people, myself included, take life for granted. I heard it on the radio this morning, as well as some other lifeguards at the pool.. and was shocked. I admit, I was wondering what a toddler was doing in a Batman movie.. but nonetheless, it's heartbreaking. I hope that the survivors make it through, both physically and emotionally.

    As for the shooter, I hope he gets a life or two in prison.. or death row (if they have it in Colorado).

    This is very scary. My 14yo daughter is visiting that area with a school friend and her family and I haven't been able to get in touch with them all morning until now. Talk about a nervous wreck!! She finally called me and said they were all safe and sound and had thought about going to the movie but were too tired WHEW.... talk about things happening or not happening for a reason.

    My prayers go out to the families...it is very devastating. I couldn't even imagine what they must be going through!

    I can't even begin to express how tragic this is. My heart and prayers go out to the family/friends of everyone involoved.

    It is sad that politcians are already turning this event into a way to push for anti gun laws.

    So very very sad. I am at a loss of words. Watched some of the news casts and couldn't help but tear up. Who would go in and tear gas a movie theater, start shooting randomly and then not put up a fight when the police were there?

    Innocent lives, people going to enjoy quality time at a movie- just sickening.

    Blessings to the police officers, medics, docs, nurses, RT's, techs, chaplains, & families who are trying to somehow put the pieces back together in Colorado..we stand united with you in our thoughts & prayers!!
