On Saturday, July 21st, the day after the shooting, Don and I returned to another Aurora-area theater to finish watching The Dark Knight Rises. While we experienced some very difficult, tense moments during the showing, we made it through together. In order to move forward, we needed to experience watching the movie again. Adding to our sense of safety was a very visible and active uniformed police presence at the theater; every time an officer stepped in to check on the house, we both breathed a sigh of relief.
These two survived the ‘Dark Knight’ shooting in Aurora, Colorado and actually went back to finish the film the next day. They didn’t want the gunman to win. (via newsweek)
This is how I wished most people responded to tragedy. Don’t freak out; keep calm and carry on.
