Tragedy and sadness at the movies

So I woke up this morning just completely saddened by some overnight news. A gunman walked into a movie theater last night and pulled out a AKA style gun during the opening of Dark Knight and began shooting. He killed over 10 innocent people just sitting there trying to have a fun family night out at a movie. I am just stunned and sick over this. What has our society come to? What on earth is someone trying to prove by shooting innocent people in a movie theater? Now we can’t feel safe going to a Friday night movie??

I just felt the need to vent a bit here. All of our world’s stopped after 9-11 and then again after the Columbine tragedy and now this. I don’t want to be a crazy protective parent, but society is proving that I have to be. I don’t know how to trust sending my kids out into the world when events like this go on. I am just praying right now for all the families involved and I am going to hug my kiddos a little tighter this morning too. I would love your thoughts on this event and what you do to still trust and allow your kids to live their lives without constant fear.
