I think everyone should heed this advice!

I’ve noticed that when something terrible happens people band together and help each other. During the horrible September 11 attacks in NY the nation came together. They hugged, cried and connected. On September 12 no airplanes entered our airspace. Flags flew. People talked. We showed the best side of ourselves. We were vulnerable and we allowed it to show.
On July 20, 2012 Colorado suffered another round of sadness when a shooter entered a midnight showing of The Dark Knight in Aurora and proceeded to shoot and wound unsuspecting patrons. What followed was more care, love, concern and kindness.
Even our politicians did something unusual and generous – they withheld playing the campaign ads that assault us each time we turn on the television. Someone decided that Colorado was dealing with enough pain and abuse and didn’t need more harassment from our presidential candidates as they point fingers, promise the moon and spend outrageous amounts of money that could be used in a million different ways.
