I don’t want to discuss the Colorado tragedy in detail because its being covered everywhere. Although on behalf of myself and my writing staff, I would like to express my condolences to the families who lost their loved ones in this senseless act. My hope is that the families and those who survived this ordeal find strength, solace, and peace at some point as they try to regain normalcy in their lives.
