  • I do not believe I am ever going to understand this. Ever.

    Twelve people dead.
    Fifty people injured.
    For no reason. None.
    There isn't one.
    There can't be one.

    Men and women,
    Young and old,
    black and white,
    gathered to watch a movie.
    Hurting no one.

    If ever there is a reason
    to believe evil exists,
    Here is one.

    If ever there is a reason
    to pray that God exists,
    Here is one.

    May God have mercy
    on their souls...
    the dead...
    the wounded...
    the one who did this...

    And the families who
    suffer and mourn.
    My prayers
    are with you.
