The excitement and anticipation of the final installment in Christopher Nolan’s amazing Dark Knight saga was met with tragedy in Aurora, CO during the midnight opening of the film. Let’s keep the victims of this senseless massacre and their families in our hearts and thoughts.
The villains in a comic book movie are outrageous and over the top and are fun to watch; the villains in real life create very real pain and trauma. At least a dozen people lost their lives for no other reason than they wanted to enjoy a movie and escape into the fantastical world of Batman for a few hours. The lives of so many more have been changed forever due to the actions of one terrible person. It’s too bad we don’t have the Dark Knight for real.
