I’ve been reading the testimonies of victims of the horrific attack in Aurora, Colorado. Twelve people were killed and dozens more were wounded, when an armed person in tactical gear broke into a movie theater, during the premiere of The Dark Knight Rises.
The chaos, horror and human loss experienced in such an event, is indescribable. Among the innocent that almost lost their lives, was one that was not mentioned, but was severely wounded.
When fear settles in, freedom as we know it is lost. Fear makes us hunker down and hide, changes our habits and alienates us from what we enjoy doing.
The only way to tackle fear, is to look at it – face on.
So tonight, go see a movie. It’s your freedom that has been wounded, and she deserves to live.
