Aurora, Colorado

I am still stunned with this: the fact that the next night after I posted "We Need To Talk About Kevin", the very same topic materialises in a tragic and sadly all too real news story. My thoughts skipped immediately to the book - actually I'm not sure my thoughts had left this book yet. Which is what I mean by stunned, it was just so uncanny and eerie. Both my emotional and intellectual response to the tragedy (by that I mean my heart and my head) are clouded in the story. I will give the author more praise than I did the other night - turns out she knows what she's talking about I think. And I will wish that the real event was only a story, and had not really happened. My heart goes out to anyone touched by the Aurora shootings.
