I can't imagine being in a movie theater where you thought you would be enjoying a movie, but turns out you're getting shot at.  It's just horrific what happened in that Aurora, CO movie theater. Lives lost, injuries, pain, heartbreak... senseless loss.  HORRIFIC!   Jessica, an aspiring sportscaster of San Antonio, had moved recently to the Denver area to pursue who dreams. Unfortunately a night at the movies, changed that for her and her family.  Thoughts & Prayers to everyone affected by this trajedgy.

President Obama's thoughts:
"Michelle and I are shocked and saddened by the horrific and tragic shooting in Colorado. Federal and local law enforcement are still responding, and my administration will do everything that we can to support the people of Aurora in this extraordinarily difficult time."

Jesse Specior/NHL writer  from Sporting News wrote a story in Jessica's honor about her dynamic personality. Also the last tweet she sent..

"Our last Twitter exchange was Thursday night, about the Batman movie that she was going to see in Colorado. It was pure silliness, sharply sarcastic and made me smile. Only now, her shout of "MOVIE DOESN'T START FOR 20 MINUTES" is just haunting."

Update 1:10pm:
President Obama set aside politics and urged the nation to support those who have lost due to the tragedy in Colorado. 

"If there's anything to take away from this tragedy, it's the reminder that life is very fragile. Our time here is limited and it is precious. And what matters at the end of the day is not the small things, not the trivial things which so often consume us in our daily lives. Ultimately, it's how we choose to treat each other and how we love one another."

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney
 He called for Americans to focus on loving each other and those affected by what he said were "a few moments of evil" near Denver.
