Not a great day when you turn on the news and hear….

Not a great day when you turn on the news and hear….


A gunman wearing a gas mask set off an explosive device and then shot in to a crowded theater killing 12 people and injuring 53 at a theater in Aurora Mall in Aurora, Colorado.  It was the opening night of the new Batman movie.


I have to wonder what would cause someone to take another person life but do to it to a number of people.  I am 3 miles away from where the movie theater is, and was woke up by a number of police cars and fire engines headed to the theater about 1 in the morning. 


So far it does not look good but this person also has a bomb in his apartment that the police had a ladder truck from the fire department go up the outside of the building and look into the apartment and see a bomb that the FBI could take days to disarm. 


I am headed to Bonfils Blood Center in a little bit to donate blood, I think they can use it.

It was the first thing I heard. I thought of you and Belinda right away. I'm so sorry to hear of what your community is going through. I'm sure anything you do will be a big help.

Totally uncalled for. Sick, disgusting and maddening.  What have we become....

It was horrible for all of us to hear but must have been even harder for you with being so close.  Glad you are going to donate.  There has been an awful lot in the news lately about the shortage of blood right now. Good Luck!

My heart is heavy for the pain and suffering of all impacted by this tragedy. Good for you in giving blood. A great way to give back. Unfortunately I am not able to do that anymore. Be well.

The thoughts of the whole country are focused on Colorado and the senseless tragedy.

It is a very good time for all that can donate blood to do it now.

Will, it made me sick when I woke up and saw the news this morning.  I have a number of friends in Denver that I cycle with, and of course now there are the Rainers out there that I think about.  It really makes me sad, and wish we could turn the clock back for all involved.  What a tragedy.  I'm glad you all are OK.  God bless you for giving blood.

Will, I have been to Aurora Colorado many times so I am familiar with the area.  I was horrified at the news broadcast of the events from last night.  My heart goes out to those victims.  Giving blood is a wonderful gift and will probably be appreciated.

Will - such a terrible thing to happen. I can never understand the randomness. It's very scary. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Aurora and it's people.

Howdy and evening Will

Will my friend, that sure was a mighty bad thing to hear first thing in the morning about! I sure do feel bad for all those folks and their families!!! I'm sure glad that you and Belinda were not there, and I sure hope no one from either of your families where there. 

Have a good one

Will, so many people would want to do something and just not know what.  Donating blood is a wonderful and generous idea.
