A July 19, 2013 article entitled “Aurora, Newtown Survivors Honor Theater Victims,” details the vigil and memorial service held in Aurora, Colorado by survivors of gun violence on the anniversary of the movie theater shooting in Aurora one year ago. The Editor of Sunset Finances mourns with these people and looks to the future with a hopeful eye.

According to a July 19, 2013, post entitled “Aurora, Newtown Survivors Honor Theater Victims” by Dan Elliott, survivors and victims of mass shootings in Colorado as well as Connecticut have gathered to honor the deaths of those killed a year ago at the midnight showing of “The Dark Knight Rises.” A sort of funeral eulogy was performed as participants read the names of victims of gun violence since December 14, 2012, the date of the Newtown shooting.

It is the opinion of Sunset Finance’s Editor that partisan politics regarding gun control and Second Amendment rights should be put aside, at least for the moment, in memoriam. Politicians and activists alike seem to push aside the fact that many people died because of the actions of single individuals. To overcome that horror, it is important to remember the lives of the children, teachers, and movie goers.

Each life is a universe that cannot be recreated. It is the culmination of all of the moments, memories, talents and dreams leading to that last moment. As human beings, there is a duty to protect what can be protected and to honor those that have died. As to the horror that visited Newtown, Connecticut and Aurora, Colorado, as well as places like Columbine, Colorado, words spoken or written cannot express the depth of sympathy felt by the Editors of Sunset Finances. Perhaps if a closer eye is kept on the potential for loss, these shootings won’t happen again.

Sunset Finances remembers the shootings in Newtown and Aurora, and calls for a setting aside of partisanism to remember the dead. honors the living and the deceased by remembering what was lost.
