My thoughts and prayers are with the victims in Aurora, Colorado.
When you go to the movies, especially in 3D, you expect the characters to come alive before your eyes, to experience the film in a way that only the big screen delivers. The action, the drama, the interaction between good and evil pop out at you, a source of marvelous entertainment. For fans of the comic book genre, the plot and the action are predictable but nonetheless breathtaking. Not life taking. Not real.
For Batman lovers in an Aurora theatre, a shooting scene in the movie mirrored a real scene when a gunman fired shots and randomly killed fourteen people, wounding at least fifty others. The gunman’s motives, rationale, or whatever reason you can imagine, is unfathomable.
I wonder. Why did he choose to be the villain? In his delusional state, did he expect to come face to face with Batman? Did he expect Batman to stop him? Unfortunately, Batman is not real. But there are real victims here, some of them children.
Please reflect and remember them in your prayers.
Thanks for stopping by.
