Bringing It Home

Friday morning I arose to the horrific story of the multiple movie theater shootings in Aurora, Colorado. As we grieve for these nameless victims, I got an e-mail from my brother the next morning stating that he had seen an NBC news interview the evening before with a young man who had been one of his (Middle School) music students. The young man and a friend had just graduated from college and were taking a bicycle trip across the country. They stopped in Aurora for the night – thought they would take him late movie – and the rest is history. I grieve for everyone associated with this story – including the shooter. But having a couple of names, that really brings it home!
