It’s been a week since a gunman stormed through an emergency exit, into a crowded movie theater, dressed head-to-toe in tactical gear and armed with several weapons. He fired on a helpless crowd, while his apartment was booby-trapped to cause more harm miles away.
After the chaos quieted, we learned 12 innocent lives ended and 58 survivors were wounded. Countless witnesses and loved ones are now coping with the trauma of the senseless violence. A week later, and the grieving process is so new for the families of those who died. Their reality is still setting in — life without their mother or father, sibling, child, cousin, best friend.
Since the massacre, AC360° has focused on the dozen dreams and futures cut short. We’re honoring the victims and what they lived for, not just talking about how they passed away. Anderson has spoken with family and friends who shared beautiful stories, funny memories and inspiring lessons they learned from those killed in Aurora, Colorado.
