Hello, Like all of us, I was devastated to see the Tragedy that unfolded in Aurora, Colorado this week. I started this blog to educate people about the various forms of Mental Illness in the hopes that it will help end the Stigma that still surrounds it. So when I want to educate about a man like this, who obviously has some Mental Health issues, I'm at a loss. I suppose I could look back through my posts, put some peices together, but I don't think I'll ever find an understanding of his actions here. This man had a deep, deep anger that we have not seen to often. Yet I can't help but feel sorry for this man, I feel somehow he was failed. I kept hearing all the commentators on the news talk about the Heroes in this tragedy, and as much as I agree with all of them, I could not help but think to myself there should have been a hero or heroes out there that could have saved him first. Then this could have been avoided. This is just my perspective because I have seen it more than I care to, people abandon people when they are in need, when they are sick, when they fear them. I am saying a prayer for all the victims and their families and my hope is that something is really learned from this Tragedy so that it does not ever happen again.
