Good on you Rock, helping out like that

Hope the cramps have gone

I have been hearing a lot about those shootings over here too...such a tragedy indeed

So glad that your son is okay JoAnn

My step-daughter was a substitute teacher in the school district during the Columbine shootings...took us hours to find out if she was okay.

Two of my step kids and their families live in Aurora. They are all okay. Mom worked and shopped in Aurora, but they moved away a few years ago.

All around, just a horrible tragedy and my heart goes out to the victims and their families.

Rock, do you think the cramps were from the pizza?

I read two stories of the victims of the Aurora shootings. One was of Jessica Gwai who was a sports blogger. Apparently two months ago she was in the shopping mall in Toronto where a shooter killed two and injured others. She just left the food court before it happened. She wrote in her blog that these are life changing moments and you never know when fate is going to step in and it is your time. Sadly, two months later she died at the hands of another gunman.

Mickala (not sure of spelling) was the other one. Her friends were trying to drag her out of the theatre when the security (or police I am not sure) told them to leave her and go. They did so reluctantly and the family didn't know if she was alive or not, lying in that theatre. When I saw a picture of all the victims and saw her name, I knew the answer.

This is what makes it a tragedy - there are stories behind each and every victim. But more often than not we hear the killer's story, not those of the victims.

She is 13. We got her when she was 3 days old. We had to wait 6 months before we could go to court & legally adopt her. Happiest day of our lives. It's worth remebering it every year.
