I went with my family to see The Dark Knight Rises today. I was a bit nervous, especially in the confines of the theater....all I could think about was the latest tragedy where the 12 people were killed in Colorado. I had a mini panic attack. I don't think I would have stayed if it wasn't for my husband being there. I literally held his hand the entire movie. I hated feeling that way.
I hate that someone can go out into our world and scare everyone with a random act of violence. I posted about it on facebook and got the reply I expected...that I shouldn't let anyone dictate my freedom of choice to go and do what I want with their random acts of violence. But...we know that is not how my mind works! I was more and more comfortable as the movie went on. But I think I will have a bit of anxiety going into any movie for a bit in the future. But I did go....I did watch the entire movie, and I came out ok. I guess that is the point...doing things anyways. I mean I could easily become a hermit if I let everything bad that "could" happen dictate my daily life. But...I didn't!
