As you may have heard, there was a shooting at a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises that took place in Colorado that has cost the lives of many innocent people. This horrific event has cast a dread pallor over what should have been a joyous occasion.
What’s needed right now more than anything is for people to gather together and help the victims recover. While most nerds wish we could be someone like Batman, we can’t. What we can do however is to dig into our pockets and grab a few bucks or more to send to organizations like the red cross in order to help out. With reportedly as many 14 dead and 50 injured there are a lot of people who will need help with medical costs, funeral arrangements and some families may likely need assistance as they adjust to the loss of a loved one.
There are a lot of ways that you, reading these words on your computer screen can help. If you have even some pocket change to spare, please do. Any readers that live in Colorado near Aurora are encouraged to volunteer or otherwise assist in any helpful ways.
As Batman himself said “Anyone can be a hero” and sometimes even donating some time and money (or some canned food around the house) can be heroic enough to make a small difference.
To the friends and family that have lost a loved one, we offer our sincerest condolences. To those injured in this monstrous act of cruelty, we hope that you recover from this fully and want to let you know that you are not alone. If you need help, please reach out.
