Exclamation Make a Child's Day. PLEASE SHARE!!

This is an idea started by someone on Facebook, to help the child victims of the recent Colorado shooting at the movie theater. You don't have to do anything fancy, just SHARE!

Not to be an ass, I seriously do love children.... but what about the other people not aged 3 months to 17 years old. As in the adults.. what do they get huh?

I don't think an actor (as in not a real hero) dressing up as batman is going to cheer them up anyhow.

I think they just need someone to chip in and help with the medical and funeral bills, honestly.

There should be some kind of fund raising thing for that. Instead of trying to convince an actor in a suit to visit.

To add on..

Let's say this DID NOT happen at the batman premiere. Let's say it happened at Walmart.

Would you encourage the person that created walmart chain companies to go visit the children in walmart vests? Do you think that would help?

Think about that.

Now if said walmart donated money to help with the monetary issues these poor people and their families are dealing with, that'd be more helpful don't you think?

I agree with Sky. If I were one of the children that was in the movie theater, I'd be scared out of my mind to see Batman walk in the room.
Real super heros do exist. To those kids, the super heros should have been their parents, and they should have known better than taking any child under the age of 12 to a midnight movie release.
For goodness sakes, there was a 3 month old! Those children should have never been there because that is far too late to have a young one out at night.

I'm deeply saddened by this, and I send my prayers and well wishes to those who are without a loved one tonight. We can do a better service than having to 'Facebook' something enough in the hopes some self-centered celebrity sees it.
Be proactive, not reactive. Facebook isn't going to put anything beneficial in effect.
