It's hard to comprehend why things happen, like the shootings in Colorado last Friday.
It's all so senseless.
Innocent people, including children, decided to go to the movies and will never go home again.
It's not supposed to be like that but it is.
The actions of one obviously very sick individual impacted the lives of so many people.
Think of all the family members, friends and co-workers of those who died so needlessly.

The victims will be terribly missed.
Even the lives of those still hospitalized will never again be the same.
Their thoughts will return, again and again, to the night when violence shook the movie theater and radically changed so many lives forever.
All of our hearts, I'm sure, go out to the victims and the families they left behind.
They also go out to those still hospitalized.
Personally, I also feel deep sadness for the parents of the gunman.
They must wonder why, too, such horror happened.
As for the gunman, himself, only God can deal with him in His own time.
As for all those who died, may they rest in eternal peace.
