Sunrise

I think I am pretty good with the written word, but sometimes, words fail me.  Especially when it comes to expressing sympathy and condolences.  Don’t know why that is, except that I feel sometimes anything I say would sound trite, clichéd, or fake.

I’m still trying to get my head around the Aurora, Colorado shooting of July 20, 2012.  It’s beyond my comprehension why somebody would want to do something like that to other people.  I don’t get it.

Because I don’t have the right words for something like this, I thought I would express my sympathy to the people of Aurora, Colorado in the best way I can, and that’s to post a photographic homage.

I’ve chosen to post some Colorado sunrise images because – to me – that represents the beauty of a new day,  a fresh start and sunlight shining to illuminate the darkness of the night.
