Jessica Ghawi, one of the twelve people killed by a gunman at a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado this morning, narrowly escaped being a shooting victim last month during a visit to Toronto.
You may recall that two people were killed and half a dozen people were injured during a shooting at the Eaton Centre in downtown Toronto.
In her blog, Ghawi had been in the food court shortly before the shooting began. She had wanted sushi but at the last minute had a burger and poutine instead. Ghawi wrote, “An odd feeling which led me to go outside and unknowningly out of harm’s way. It’s hard for me to wrap my mind around how a weird feeling saved me from being in the middle of a deadly shooting.”
We will never know if Ghawi had that weird feeling again this morning. If she did this time she could not escape to safety.
Ghawi had recently moved to Colorado from Texas to pursue a career in sports journalism.
There but for the grace of God.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
