Such an immense tragedy.
Thank you, Obama, for this reminder:
"We may never understand what leads anybody to terrorize their fellow human beings like this. Such violence, such evil, is senseless. It’s beyond reason.
But while we will never know fully what causes somebody to take the life of another, we do know what makes life worth living. The people we lost in Aurora loved and were loved. They were mothers and fathers, husbands and wives, sisters and brothers, sons and daughters, friends and neighbors. They had hopes for the future and they had dreams that were not yet fulfilled. If there’s anything to take away from this tragedy, it’s the reminder that life is very fragile. Our time here is limited and it is precious. What matters at the end of the day is not the small things, not the trivial things that so often consume us and our daily lives. Ultimately, it’s how we choose to treat one another, and how we love one another.”

Breaking News: Gunman Kills 12 At Colorado Dark Knight Rises Premiere: A lone masked gunman armed with a rifle, a shotgun, and two handguns entered a movie theater outside Denver, CO, this morning just minutes after the 12:05 a.m. premiere of The Dark Knight Rises began, killing at least 12 people and wounding 38.
A witness said the gunman entered the Aurora theater through the emergency exit door, “threw a canister across the theater,” unleashing gas, “then started shooting.” Another witness said movie-goers were confused when the shooting started because they thought the sound of gunfire was coming from the movie.
A third witness said, “He looked so calm when he did it.”
The suspect, whom federal authorities have identified as 24-year-old James Holmes,was arrested outside the theater. A search of his apartment uncovered more explosives.
Holmes had no history with police other than a traffic ticket.
In reaction to the tragedy, Warner Bros. has canceled the Paris premiere of The Dark Knight Rises, issuing a statement saying the company “is deeply saddened to learn about this shocking incident.”

Disney Fashion

This is by far the best thing I have seen all week.

AMAZING outfits inspired by Disney characters (etc.)…and the best part is that you can BUY ALL OF IT! Don’t know whether to be happy about this or really really terrified.
