I am so glad you are okay. I thought of you first, when I heard the news.

I saw the video and noticed a Century movie theatre there. I cannot help but to wonder... since the Denver shooting was in a Century movie theatre, was this clown trying to be a copycat???

Whether or not the theatre had anything to do with it, in a broad sense all gun violence is "copycat" in nature. Guns are the easiest, most efficient and most available way for nut jobs to do away with multiple human beings. And no matter how crazy these people are, they seem to understand that.

Sharon,

I am so sorry this thread has brought about politics. I truely was asking about your well being, and didn't know how to get in touch.

Staff, Please don't send this to the other place. I would rather you delete it, rather than it be another reason for name calling.

While the thread may have been diverted from the intent of it... which happens a lot... I don't see any political comments at all.
