  • The Colorado shooting spree that took place last week is one of the saddest and most disturbing things I can imagine.
    My heart and my prayers go out to the families that lost loved ones and the still injured.
    I often reflect on what kind of a monster this suspect was to apparently commit such a heinous act. It is reminiscient of Columbine or Timothy McVeigh.
    Over the weekend I heard comments from others about what they wish they could do to the perpetrator of this evil act.
