Then the news strikes, "Massacre in Aurora". I thought it was a misprint. Aurora is where I just saw a family eating a picnic in the grass. Aurora is a regular town. Aurora is not the "crime-ridden" Anacostia from which I just left! Chilling, shook and in a state of disbelief, I drove up I-70 towards Breckenridge Ski Resort.

Up in the mountains, we are far far away from the depressing news of another gunman terrorizing unsuspecting victims. We try to enjoy ourselves with a scenic bike ride through the Vail Pass.

But there is a quiet undertone of sadness. While Colorado is a great escape, there is a haunting message that I can't ignore. There is no such thing as an escape, no such thing as an exclusively safe place. Violence anywhere affects people everywhere.
