Yes, my first reaction was and is, 'what the hell was wrong with the shooter in Colorado?!' I am angry and saddened. Yes, I believe there is an evil in this world and it can make people numb, but I also know that this man's actions could have been the result of a lack of love towards him - neglect, being ignored, bullying, made fun of, laughed at, who knows? At the end of the day, I do not know the why, but I know this man was human; he had a heart that beat, and once upon a time, had the innocence of a child. His actions are nonetheless horrific and sick and by no means excused, but we can't forget to pray for him as well. He may have parents, aunts and uncles, cousins, or brothers and sisters, that deeply cared for him. Let us not forget their pain. So "Let everything you say be good and helpful for building others up according to their needs, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them." (Eph 4:29).
