    So sad, and to think my soon to be 20 yr old was with friends at the local theater 40 miles away. My prayers go out to everyone involved.

    Violence is the norm for our kids today. They are numb to it because of the movies, music and our leaders promoting violence as a way resolve problems.

    I live in a state that allows guns. I know that if that had happened in my state that the shooter himself would be dead and the tragedy would have had many less victims. The idea that the people in that theater were helpless to defend themselves made me sick to my stomach.
    Also I just visited tonight with a man in his 30’s who said the movie itself is 3 hrs long and it is VERY VERY DARK and only the last 20 mins has hope! There was also a scene in the movie that was similar to what the shooter actually did!!!!! How can we keep watching this stuff and not be surprised that it is effecting our minds?

      Texas has concealed hand gun owners, Texas is working on taking our nation back as a
      ‘country’ again for this very type of thing. The kids are so caught up these days on all of tese horrible things. Most don’t even have a clue of hope, Jesus much less parents that are there available for them. So much to say, so sad. I just pray for everyone that breathes air for safety and their life, salvation in Jesus.

    So true Lana — The South has a higher percentage of people who attend church — some states as much as 40%. Colorado has a very low percent – about 5% attend church. We need to pray!!!

      Wowhad no idea about the percentage of church attendance. I’m of course in the Bible belt area, but I was basically raised in the church so this doesnt even compute in my mind at all. Yes we do need prayer as a naion.
      I am a brand new Holistic Health Couselor and we haved been o dumbed down by the media, government,etc that we arent supposed to think for ourselves about anthing. We need to go back to the Bible. And I read on lot of fb sites where so few believe in God an it really blows my mind of the way peope live. OH it just breaks my heart totally. I am praying for our nation regularly and for our children. So many kids have been left to themselves for to long. I chose to be a SAHM while my kids were little and only worked PT so that one of the parents could always be available for them. THEY WERE OUR responsiblity and NO ONE ELSES! I see so manysad, lonely children everywhere. They are now 27, 24, neary 20. Fixing to start reading Grooming the Next Generation now. Finishing Sprit riven Success now!

    What about prayer. I want you to know God woke me up i went to prayer room in Colorado. i did not know why God wanted me to pray. if God woke me up who else did God wake up. I prayed not just lightly but as a worrier. 12:30 am till 5:30am Sunday morning after church i went and prayed with family’s & friends. I continue to pray for these family’s for anger, hate every time i cpray i send them a text so they know some one that is there.
