I was raised and lived in Aurora from 1946 until 1989 and have always considered Aurora to be my hometown no matter where I lived.
I was horrified to learn of the shootings at the Century 16 theater on July 20th. However, it is with a sense of pride that I have been hearing reports of the rapid response of the Aurora Police, Fire and other first responders to this horrific incident.
I also hear about the actions of some of the theater goers in their efforts to assist each other in spite of the threat that they faced.
Condolences to the families of those who were killed and wishes for a speedy recovery for the wounded.
