Taking a moment

I live just south of Aurora, CO where the theater shooting happened. As I sit in the hospital where many victims were taken after the shooting, I am taking another moment to send my thoughts and prayers to the victims of the mass murder. The victims who were killed, the victims who survived, and the victims who had loved ones affected by this tragedy. As I watch the news coverage and hear people who were there tell their stories, through the horrible shock and disbelief, I also feel pride and belief in the goodness of humanity. Many of the victims who died did so protecting someone they cared about. The survivors I have heard share their stories are grateful to be alive and inspire us with hope for their future. I’m proud to see people from Colorado and people from all over the country pull together to support each other instead of pointing fingers and placing blame in all directions.
My heart hurts for the losses, and I know I’m just one of many out there sending thoughts and prayers.
