Thoughts on the Colo. shooting
Columbine, Virginia Tech, University of Texas Clock Tower, Ft. Hood, Tucson and now Aurora, Colo. Where next? How close will it be to home? We are not immune to the kind of violence that gives all of those places instant public recognition, you know.
All of us awoke to the same news last Friday: 12 people dead and 58 injured when James Holmes unloaded four weapons full of ammunition into an unsuspecting crowd at a sold-out midnight premiere of the new Batman movie “The Dark Knight Rises.” The number of casualties makes the incident the largest mass shooting in U.S. history.
