We the people got another rude awakening of what is the ultimate prize of living in the most beautiful country in the world. Who would have thought that an evening with the kids in the movie theater would turn out to be a nightmare? That a date with your sweetheart would not be a romantic interlude, but a tragic moment.
July 20th should have been just another day of our lives, but for those unfortunate others it turned out to be “Their Darkest Night.”
But my friends, I am not here to talk about Aurora, CO, I am here to preserve the legend of Gotham. I’m not here to talk about the AR-15 sub-machine gun, but would rather talk about the infamous Utility Belt, and let us not forget about the Cape, the Cave, the Bat Mobile, and yes, even Alfred, the loyal Butler.
“The Pursuit of Happiness” is our right, so let us go and practice it. Do not let a domestic terrorist take these privileges away from us.
” We must reject the idea that every time a law is broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.” — Ronald Reagan
So go out there and watch your favorite movies, dine at your favorite restaurant, take a stroll at your favorite park. Let us not be like the City of Paris who cancelled the “The Dark Knight Rises” World Premier because of what happened thousands of miles away… HA! “French … what do you expect?”
If I were to point a finger, I would point it at Mr. G. Clooney, for the fact that he almost single-handedly took down the Batman franchise himself … now that’s scary.
We go and watch these types of movies because they remind us of a simpler time and place, when we were children; and to do the right things, to walk the path of righteousness, and simply put, they bring happiness and joy to us. NEVER let anyone take that away from you because if ever that happens, then everyday will be “Our Darkest Night.”
Our hearts and prayers go out to all the victims and their loving families.
God bless you, one and all.
