A few days ago I write about the potential long term effects of the Batman shooting. This will be an update.
By now most who are reading know I live in Aurora, Colorado, about a half mile from the theater where the shooting took place. Working at home, I’m fairly isolated and therefore insulated from this tragedy which is still unfolding here. I don’t really know who all was shot, what their condition is, who was in the theater and who may be related to one of the victims until I (or my husband) runs into someone who tells us something.
Several days ago we found out that my husband knows the grandfather of one of the boys who was killed and we heard secondhand that the family was having a very hard time. Today I went to the hair salon and found out one of the mothers had her hair done there to go her son’s funeral. This is how this is touching people here.
On topic, I have written about my manicurist over the years, she has 4 kids between the ages of 12 and 18. Her daughter asked if she could go to the theater that night and she said, no. “You’re too young,” she said. Later that night, the family was awake (these are young parents) when the kids started getting texts about the shooting. Yeah, they found out right after it happened…within minutes and they turned on the TV and apparently watched for a couple of hours.
Further, one of that same daughter’s friends DID go to the theater that night, and she was one of the people shot, but not killed.
“Lemme ask you something,” I said. “How do your kids feel about going to the movies after this?”
She waved her hand. “No,” she said. “They don’t want to go to the movies after this. I don’t think any my kids are ever going to go the movies again.”
I thought it was a strong statement, but she’s a Sadge and if you ask her a question, she’ll answer it.
I don’t think people across the country are taking this in the same way, but I don’t know. Around here, people, kids in particular, do not seem interested in going into a theater to think about what happened.
I want to point out one other thing. Awhile back, I wrote about Charles Manson. Most know his name but I bet that young people don’t know that prior to those murders, people did not lock the doors of their house. No one used to lock their doors and it was that event that impacted the collective in this way. Just so you know how things change.
How have the children in your city reacted to the murders?
