My niece and her fiance live in Aurora. My sister called me first thing in the morning to let me know that she and her fiance were not at the theater, trying to catch me before I saw it on the news.

Breathes.

14 shot dead at dark knight rises screening in Aurora, Co.

The story is breaking.

What a messed up world.

Oh my dearling! *massive hugs*

What a mercy your niece and her fiance were nowhere near that theatre. I do hope your sister got word of this before seeing it on the news...the suspense would have been beyond words.

The world is going nuts.

Oh my god. My cousin just moved there, and that movie would be right up his alley. I tried calling him and his mom, and no one's answering. *tries not to panic because it's early and they could be sleeping*

Please let me know when you hear from them. Prayers said that he is all right and simply sleeping.

*hugs you*

*hugs*

It ended up that he was sleeping. He had gone to the midnight premiere but at a different theater. My aunt freaked when she couldn't get a hold of him and took the first flight out.

I can't say I blame your Aunt. My niece's grandmother on her paternal side saw the news first and woke my niece up at 3:00am in hysterics worried she was one of them.

I'm very glad and relieved that your family is all right. *hugs*

It's kind of strange. Most of my close friends have friends/family that lives there. Small world.

Thanks. Am happy that your family was safe okay as well. *hugs*

Thank you. It was. It ended up that he was sleeping. He had gone to the midnight premiere but at a different theater. My aunt freaked when she couldn't get a hold of him and took the first flight out.

Oh jeez. I'm sure he thought it was an over-reaction but I can't say I blame her one bit. Glad he is safe.

Nope, it's a mother thing.

*Hugs you too.*

I am so relieved that my niece was not there, at this moment I'm waiting to hear back if all of her friends are all right. I have the same sick feeling when I watched the news break for the Columbine shootings and 9/11.

Yeah, my sister, who now lives up in the mountains in Bailey, used to live in Aurora so while I know she wasn't there, will be emotionally affected by this. She lived a couple blocks away from the Columbine School during that disaster but taught at Denver's Finest Alternative High School. Her two younger kids would have been attending that school that day if they hadn't decided to transfer to the school she was teaching at. On such seemingly small decisions do lives thrive.

I'm calling her today.

I think that's a wonderful idea.

*Hugs you*
