My Heart Aches for Aurora, CO

“Don't be ashamed to weep; 'tis right to grieve. Tears are only water, and flowers, trees, and fruit cannot grow without water. But there must be sunlight also. A wounded heart will heal in time, and when it does, the memory and love of our lost ones is sealed inside to comfort us.” ― Brian Jacques, Taggerung

Like most Americans, I was struck with horror when I heard the news of last night's shooting at the Century 16 theater in Aurora, CO during the midnight viewing of "The Dark Knight Rises."

I'm literally at a loss for words at this moment. This won't be a long blog post, I just simply had a question to my fellow bloggers. Do any of you know of an online donation page being set up for cash or money efforts to be put towards a gift or funeral needs for the loved ones of those who were lost in this tragedy? I know that there is a donation event happening in Colorado, but the event's host mentioned that they will NOT be accepting cash or money donations.

Please let me know if you get this information. I appreciate it.

UPDATE: There is an online donation page hosted by Crowd Wise, where people can donate by name or anonymously however much they please (minimum of $10). Go HERE to make a donation that will go toward relief efforts for families who have lost loved ones.

“When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it--always.” ― Mahatma Gandhi
