It’s been one week since the senseless tragedy in Aurora, Colorado. Over the last few days we’ve heard horrifying details about an event we will never understand. We’ve listened, watched and grieved together.
When we hear a distressing story, our first thought is often: “Why?” We want the world we live in to make sense, but sometimes it just won’t. Stories like this hurt and terrify us, because they defy all reason. And because we are human.
We feel pain for the victims and their loved ones. And we realize there is simply no answer to our question of why. What happened was such an unjust and inhumane act. We can no more understand this than we can stop being humans.
All we can do is try to get through this – together.
