By now almost everyone has heard about the horrible shooting massacre that occurred at the midnight showing of “The Dark Knight Rises” in Aurora, Colorado, on July 20, 2012. This story is so horrible on so many levels. I was surprised to learn that the theater where this tragedy took place was only about 15 miles away from where the Columbine shooting took place a number of years ago. I can’t imagine the horror that replaced the excitement of being among the first to see the much anticipated installment of the Batman movie series.

P. Diddy, Jamie Lynn Spears, Nicole Richie, Babyface (not you too Babyface!!!!), and Halle Berry…come on….Oscar winner Halle Berry. And my goodness, don’t even think about “multiple babies out of wedlock” world ambassador Angelina Jolie!!! Babies are a natural outcome of love shared between two people who have committed their lives to each other and agreed to raise the baby in a two-parent home full of love. Sure every marriage doesn’t work out. Continue reading more
