we’ll never know why  

let’s take a moment
take a breath and remember
we’ll never know why


Corn is good.

I want to see The Dark Knight Rises and I will not some whack job instill fear in me.

My heart is heavy for the victims in Aurora and yet I feel disconnected from the tragedy. I want to know their stories, I want to know their names. What did they dream? They should have been safe watching a movie. They wanted to see the movie so badly that they went to the midnight showing. It should have been a fun and exciting time. And this is why I mourn for them. They went to a place of escape and instead experienced tragedy because of a whack job.

I don’t blame the guns. If he had instead used a crossbow would there be an outcry for better crossbow control? No, of course not. So STFU about better gun control. Criminals and whack jobs don’t give a rat’s ass about the law. If you are an intelligent thinker, you can’t argue the logic, can you?

But I don’t talk politics and such, so I’ll end my rant there.

Enjoy the days you’re given, find beauty in the little things. Live your life, love with all your heart, and laugh until you cry.

This is where we disagree strongly. He bought all those guns and ammo legally. It's not like he got them on the black market. Gun laws allowed him to have an automatic weapon. I hate guns. I like shooting them but hate them all the same. That's all I'm gonna say about that. However, I do wish we'd spend as much for talking about the lack of mental health resources because that has as much to do with this as guns

This more likely a mental health issue. If his own mother knew that it was him, what does that say? People he knew must have known something wasn't right about him. His apartment is supposedly booby trapped with explosives so he meant to to do harm one way or another, eh?

mmm corn. lately, i've been loving it plain. never thought i could like it without butter and salt. so sweet and good. even cold on a warm day.

i can't watch any of the shooting news without tearing up. the news should mention how cowardly it is to attack unarmed people. i know he's psycho. it's all just senseless.

i love the last line you wrote. i'll just listen to that instead of the gory details on tv.

When I had corn at CornFest, it was slathered with butter and it was so good! I need to get some butter before I have my corn. :)

I read articles throughout the day and watched some of the needs when I came home. I saw some an interview with two if the survivors. I'm glad for them and hope they aren't forever haunted by this.

We need to stop for a moment and mourn then we need to live our lives.

Guns are so easily accessible legally and illegally. But no one should be fearful of going to the theater.

That corn looks delicious. I never went to the Cornfest :( Do you ever partake in cherry picking? My parents love that.

It's just so horrible. It makes me so sad to think they were all just there to have a good time and it ended so violently. :(

I haven't had the corn yet! Need some butter. I haven't done any cherry picking but we usually get a box of cherries at work, so I take from there. :)
