Aurora Victims

I wanted to devote this post to the victims in the movie theatre in Aurora, CO. I usually don’t talk about sad subjects in my blog but I thought it would be appropriate to show my support to the victims in some kind of way. For some reason I did not find out until nighttime on Friday as to what happened but I was shocked nonetheless. I think it really hit close to home since it was a movie I talked about seeing with friends the day before and that it could have been anybody, almost anywhere.

I was watching Anderson Cooper explain it all and he brought up a good point. It’s important for us not to remember the shooter but to instead remember the victims that were affected. After every shooting, nationwide people remember the shooter more than they remember the victims to I think it’s important for us to try to at least offer our support to the victims whether it’s just a Tweet or anything.

Here’s a video of two of the people at the movie theatre talking about their experiences:
