From Washington I traveled to Denver to meet with Individuals to begin the process to construct stores in the Denver market area.  In the hotel last night I saw for the first time the actual news story of the terrible tragedy in Aurora Colorado.   The news last night was very detailed.   Individuals from 6 years old to 51 years old were killed.  It affected me emotionally.  Today I met with the associates in Aurora.  My first instinct after driving past the area of the tragedy last night was to go back today and pay my respects.

I went to the memorial site today across the street from the theater where the tragedy occurred.

Hundreds of people gathered and standing around.

The silence and quiet emotions was dramatic.  I was moved to tears.  As I stood I imagined families and individuals and how their lives had changed instantly.  For some time I was motionless.  Very sobering.  Standing next to me was a women that was very emotional.  I commented to her how tragic this was for the community.  She agreed and mentioned in a whispering comment that her brother was killed that night.  I was stunned .  What could I say to her?  All I could get out was “i am sorry”.   I fought back the tears as she stood close to me.  I wondered why she was there alone.  As she stepped away I said I would pray for her and her family.  She turned back at me and thanked me.

It was hard for me to raise my camera and capture any of the people and the site in general.  It felt a little morbid for a minute.  Then I realized that my photographs may bring some attention to the whole tragedy.   And forward to those that read my blog the scene.
