Dark Day For Dark Night
By Ron Rego 7/21/12
The stories keep rolling in from that awful night at the movies for the Colorado film
fans. It only took the warped mind of one individual to turn a great experience into a
nightmare. Batman seems to have a dark side, not only on screen, but off as well.
We all know about Heath Ledger and the tragedy that took his life after wrapping up
filming the second installment of the trilogy. Now we have an event that has gone far
beyond what any person can even comprehend as insane. No one may ever know
why it happened. As movie fans, we never thought anything like that could ever
happen. If it was a fire, people could understand and move on, but how do the family
and friends ever move on from this massacre?
It certainly takes away from a great feeling from everyone who goes to watch the film.
In the back of everyone’s mind, they will be thinking of the victims in Colorado and for
that moment, Batman means absolutely nothing. Something so simple like going to a movie now becomes a task for many people. The children now have to ask if they will be safe in a movie theater. How does a parent explain that?
My heart goes out to all the victims and their families. I for one have enjoyed going to a movie for years and plan too almost every week. Stories of heroes in that Colorado theater keep coming and that is great to hear, but stories like Jessica Ghawi just crush you. She died in the movie theater after surviving a deadly rampage at a Toronto shopping mall last month. It is chilling to imagine being somewhere this happens once, but twice? That’s just cruel for life to hand you that.
I do not want to give the psycho any recognition what so ever and won’t mention his name. He should be eliminated from the face of the earth and hope he enjoys his life in prison as others do things to him that tortures his brain for years. He will never see freedom again, but neither will the victim’s families.
We hope all of our fans have an opinion on this and hope you share your thoughts.
