Thoughts are with victims of movie shooting

It is heartbreaking to hear about the massacre that occurred in Aurora, Colo., during an early morning showing of "The Dark Knight Rises" last week.

According to police, a man entered a movie theater, threw something along the lines of a smoke bomb and started shooting movie-goers. As of Friday - hours after the shooting - there were at least 12 killed and dozens injured.

The suspect, James Holmes, 24, was in police custody following the incident.

This is one of those events where there seems to be no explanation. Much like the shooting at Virginia Tech in 2007, this tragedy leaves us asking a lot of questions, many focusing on if there were any ignored warning signs from the shooter prior to the incident. You would think in a situation such as this there would be, but hindsight is 20/20. Events like these teach us, however, that if you are concerned about someone's behavior, it is better to raise awareness about it. It could save many lives.

More information will be coming out in the next couple of weeks, but for now we can only keep the victims and their families in our thoughts.
