I don't know about anyone else, but I think people have gone crazy.
This horrifying shooting in Colorado over the weekend has me scratching my head and afraid for my children.
Not that I wasn't terrified after Columbine or Virginia Tech or Tucson. I was. I became fearful of sending my children off the college. Now I'm fearful of going to a movie. I just don't understand what's happening in the world.
I know now is not the time to point fingers or cast blame, but when I hear a 6 year old girl was killed, I have to wonder why she was there in the first place. I have a 6 year old son who loves superheroes. Never, in a million years, would he be at a midnight showing of one of these movies. Ever. I doubt I'll let him go to a midnight movie when he's 12. But that's just me.
I don't even want to comment on the fact that there was a 3 or 4 month old infant there as well. Dare I even mention the words child endangerment - regardless of the fact that there was a shooting at the movie. Who takes an infant to a midnight movie?!?
Across the board, I'm sick about the situation. I'm disgusted that the shooter even had these weapons in the first place. I'm shocked that there are people who bring children and infants to midnight movies. I'm saddened for the families of those who lost loved ones. I'm worried for my children's future.
I'm disheartened about the world we live in.
