Out of respect for the senseless loss of lives here in Colorado this week, I am not going to post for this week. Blogging about things like writing tips seems ridiculous right now. I am heartbroken for those who lost loved ones in that movie theater, and I'm angry that it happened in the first place. I get that "guns don't kill, people do," but we sure make it easy when someone can purchase 6,000 rounds of ammo and 4 guns and no one blinks an eye. It would have been much more difficult for him to kill if he'd had to stab each person to death instead. As I live close to both Columbine and the movie theater (and many here are still dealing with the aftermath of the wildfires), I can say that Colorado is a little shell-shocked right now. I won't be online much this week, but my deepest condolences go out to those affected by this tragedy. I hope that everyone takes time to tell their families that they love them, and remember to make every moment count.
