12 Killed in Horrific Movie Theater Shooting

In what should have been a fun filled evening for the large crowd who eagerly awaited the midnight screening of the most anticipated film of 2012 (unless you are a Twitard) turned out to be one of the most horrific moments of the year. A man clad all in black with riot gear and bullet proof vest opened fire upon a packed theater in the middle of a screening of The Dark Knight Rises. After throwing tear gas into the theater he took it upon himself for reasons unknown to punish these people. The man, James Holmes aged 24 wounded 38 plus people while killing twelve. The ages varied from a few months to forty five years old.

My heart goes out to those who were shot and everyone else involved. Clearly this senseless tragedy not only ruined a nice evening for a majority if not all of these people but ruined lives of others. The premier over in Paris, which was going to feature the cast was canceled today by Warner Bros and President Obama called for a national day of reflection saying “Such violence, such evil is senseless. It is beyond reason… There are going to be other days for politics. This is a day for prayer and reflection.”

If you go see the movie this weekend please keep in the victims of this senseless act in your thoughts and prayers.
