I am doing this post to ask for prayers for ALL the victims of the Aurora shooting. But there is also one family in particular.
A local man was shot in the eye during the attack. He has lost his right eye and is in a medically induced coma. He and his wife went to the movie premier as a last outing before their baby is born. His wife has since gone into labor so he will miss the birth of his son. We are a pretty small community and he is well known around here so the community is rallying to raise money for the family and will be doing a prayer vigil tomorrow night. I know there are many victims of the shooting but this one hits close to home for me. I don't know him well but I know enough to know he is a good guy. I won't put to much in this post about it and make it long but if you want to read more about their story here is a website:
(Just a warning, one one of the pages there are pictures of him in the hospital!)
