Sometimes there are no words.
Being a resident of Denver today has been overwhelmingly sad. The streets were oddly quiet, the grocery store nearly empty. It was as if our city was paralyzed. How did this happen here? Again?
I work in Aurora, drive through Aurora and see Aurora from my front door. Every day. Former students and the daughter of a dear friend who babysits for us often were in attendance in Theater 9. Details are scarce but I do know they are all safe.
Media is everywhere. Helicopters, photographers, satellite news vans. Everywhere. It is all so surreal.
Our thoughts, prayers and deepest sympathies go out to the families affected by this horrendous tragedy as well a huge thank you to all the over 200 fire fighters, paramedics, and police men and women who responded.
Hug your loved ones for just a little bit longer tonight and always remember to tell them how much you love them. Each moment is precious.
