Tragedy in Colorado Makes Us Ask: Why?

The Dark Night Rises premiered in theaters across the country last night, but, in one Colorado theater, something dark happened with, so far, no explanation.

An armed gunman dressed in riot gear allegedly broke into an Aurora movie theater and dropped a gas canister.  Then, the gunman allegedly began methodically shooting moviegoers.  At press time 12 people are dead and several more are injured and wounded.

As always in these situations, the first question that must be answered is, "Why?

The alleged gunman, 24-year-old James Holmes, is in custody.  Hopefully, we will find out why.  Victims in the case were as young as three months old.

My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and those wounded as well as all the families and all the people that were in that movie theater.
