As you know, I review films. What you may not have known, is that I live just a few short miles from Aurora, here in Colorado. Aurora is a suburb East of Denver proper.
This morning, I’m finding it quite difficult to focus on finishing my review of 'The Dark Knight Rises,' as I am feeling intense sorrow for the families affected by the shooting at the midnight showing, last night. I’m also harboring a great deal of anger towards the killer.
My thoughts are with the people caught unaware in that theater, and the people of Aurora, who may now think twice about going to see movies in their city.
As a fan of Batman, for over three decades, I will get around to posting my review of the film, later on. I will do so, with a heavy heart, but I will wait a while, out of respect for the dead, and for those suffering. Lastly, I’d like to send out a quick “thank you,” to those who have worked all night on aiding the injured and distraught, and to law-enforcement who have hopefully captured the guilty criminal and will see him brought to justice.
