I know, it's gross. It trivializes it. I know from other threads that you live there, and I can't imagine how awful it is to see people who aren't dealing with the direct aftermath to tell you what your experiencing and seeing first hand is false. People are idiots

I heard an interview with him on NPR. He was so genuine and sweet and said something along the lines of "I want to meet the kids again, I want them to know things aren't always this horrible." It broke my heart.



And about the people who think they're "crisis actors".... The people that believe this nonsense must be so dumb and impressionable. I honestly believe most of them probably can't wrap their head around such an enormous tragedy and need some kind of explanation to break it down for them. Unfortunately there isn't a clear one, there can't be... And so instead they turn to conspiracy theories

:( I think it's really sad that people who were the first ones to post about how tragic the shooting was were also the first ones to post this conspiracy bs.



Next thing they will be told is Snopes is controlled by the govt'.

And then I've read some replies that the parents aren't involved in the conspiracy. Then the ones who think the children didnt die. There are so many out there that believe this conspiracy theory.

It would be laughable if it wasn't so tragic. Anyways, i hope this post helps a little, and seriously I'm so sorry that something like this even needs to be posted. I hope you and your neighbors are able to find some peace

Quoting .Colleen.:" How are they recovering from the incident? :("


They are doing really well. Her son bounced back pretty quick and went and saw the rest of the movie soon after. He kept himself busy and I think that was his way of dealing with it. Smart kid though... he went and ran off to the exit without anyone telling him.



My friend has her moments of being eh about it. She went to the movies as a way to heal but she felt weird. She is doing better, but she said some days is hard because she cant believe that was her. She doesnt like to talk about it though, so we stopped asking her how she was because she said she was fine but really just needed people to not bring it up.



But oh my gosh, I started bawling when I got on facebook and saw her post. It was before I even heard it on the news and such so it scared the shit out of me. Im just glad shes okay.

Can we just post this link in every "hoax" thread? >_< There's one that's still going on and people still have their tinfoil hats on.
