Remembrance

I’m sure everyone has heard of the tragedy in Colorado, so this is just a very short post and I hesitated to “say” anything.

If you have a moment today, think of the people involved, their families and their loss and maybe send some good thoughts or prayers or whatever you do to pay homage.

Visit Rich at Brainsnorts — he has a few words about this as well.

Have a nice weekend everyone.

  1. I just heard about this about an hour and a half ago (I’m on the West Coast, so we observe correct time). It boggles the mind. You know–why?
    I’m sorry for anyone who is so miserable that they feel at their wit’s end. But to do this is so abominable.

  3. Dear B,
    I found this on facebook this morning, by a guy I love on there…named Dodinsky. I loved it.:

    Dodinsky’s Garden of Thoughts

    Sometimes things happen that makes no sense at all, you ask yourself how can another person willfully hurt another. It is more of a statement of disbelief than a question. All we could hope for is that our collective voice against the inhumanity of the few and that our universal desire to live in a compassionate filled world extinguishes the fire of hatred they have spawned. Let us not forsake our humanity. — Dodinsky

    ♥ Let us keep in our thoughts the recent victims of the Bulgaria and Colorado tragedy. Let us also not forget ALL those who have suffered and died from the hand of another human being.

    Peace to you♥
    Lis

  4. I saw Rich’s post too, B–unbelievable. Such a senseless, evil event. This, like so many other things people can do, is just beyond my comprehension.

  5. Beyond comprehension sort of sums this up. Very sad.

  6. We moved to Colorado not long after the Columbine shootings in Littleton. When people spoke about it, you could hear the heartache in their voices. Aurora isn’t too far from Littleton, we have friends there, and I know their hearts are broken again today. There truly are no words to describe what a tragedy like this does to a community. peace

  7. Such a senseless and tragic act. We actually saw the movie today–my 12 year old has eagerly awaited it for months and the plan was to go to the matinee today. Obviously, I didn’t tell him what happened before we saw the film, but it weighed heavy on my mind. Those poor people and their families and their community. As others have said–there are no words.

  11. Geez, Brigitte… that connection to the other WP blog is so very eerie and so very sad. A very sick world we live in. God bless everyone involved.

  12. Brigitte, I got continual goosebumps as I read the post that Rich’s blog links to. I can’t help but think what must have gone on in the girl’s mind when she was in the theater and the gunman opened fire……. it’s just a devastating and heartbreaking tragedy. If you don’t mind, I’d like to share this on my blog as well because this is much too serious not to be shared. Peace and positive thoughts to all who were involved and all those who are gone.

  13. Thank you for sharing. Although I have already listened to the Aurora PD radio traffic, your link to Jessica’s post more than anything brought it home and into my heart. Peace and comfort to the victims and their loved ones.
