My oldest son was nearly 3 before he saw a movie in a theatre. I took him to How To Train Your Dragon, and it was a big deal (picture above).
Last night, when a gunman opened fire in an Aurora, Colorado movie plex, it was the midnight showing of The Dark Knight Rises. Amongst the more than 70 people that were shot were a 9 yr old, 6 yr old, and 3 month old.
Some have asked that we not blame the victims in a time like this. Fine, I appreciate that we don’t want to pile on the tragedy, but shooting or not, I’d have the exact same reaction.
