Be Thankful

The more and more I read about the shooting in Colorado, the sicker I become. Seeing a movie is supposed to be a form of relaxation, a break from the craziness of the real world and a chance to lose yourself in a dream world. Although I will never be able to understand the pain of the victims and their families, I can empathize.

I also have to wonder how the shooter’s family feels. It is one thing to have a mother lose a child, but how does a mother feel if her child was responsible for the lives lost. It is sad how evil and heartless people can be. I don’t understand what drives a person to become a cold-blooded killer. This murderous act just proves that while God is here and ever present, there is some evil presence that roams this Earth. 

All I can say, is that today we should be grateful for being alive and relish in the simple pleasures that this day brings.
