    The Victims of the Colorado Shooting

    interviewed Jordan Ghawi, brother of shooting victim Jessica Ghawi (Redfield-professional name-wanted to be a sportscaster) who explained he was doing interviews so the victims would be talked about rather than the killer. Anderson thereafter tweeted about not using the killers name as Jordan had said how upsetting it was that we always know the killers names but not the victims..

    Anderson Cooper ‏@andersoncooper
    We'll tell all we know of suspect, but I'll try not to use his name much. History should remember those who died, not their killer. @AC360
    Retweeted by Jordan Ghawi
    Jordan Ghawi has a blog and twitter site. his sister is the one who had narrowly escaped the Toronto Mall shooting...what are the chances?

Not at all. JMO

    For Those Killed or Hurt in the Colorado Theatre Shooting

    This is a thread to spread the word about the victims of the coward who recently killed 12 and wounded 70 at the theater in Aurora, CO.

    Please list their names, something about them, photos and their status as reported. I will start with one who has really touched me for some reason: http://maximumnewsinformer.com/wp-co...otoblog600.jpg

    His name is Alex Sullivan. Age, 28. Newly married and about to celebrate his first year anniversary on 7-22-12. 7-19-12 was his birthday. He was very excited to go see the Batman premier and wrote on twitter and FB, "This is going to be the BEST birthday EVER!".

    There have been conflicting reports in the MSM as to his status. His father and all his family have been searching for him. http://maximumnewsinformer.com/?p=8929

    (Many other missing people are listed in the above-linked article).

    Jessica Ghawi Redfield



    From her Twitpic, Jessica and the dog she adopted 7 days ago....

    http://twitpic.com/photos/JessicaRedfield

    On her blog she wrote about her narrow escape from the scene of the Toronto Mall shooting:

    I was shown how fragile life was on Saturday. I saw the terror on bystanders’ faces. I saw the victims of a senseless crime. I saw lives change. I was reminded that we don’t know when or where our time on Earth will end. When or where we will breathe our last breath. For one man, it was in the middle of a busy food court on a Saturday evening.

    I say all the time that every moment we have to live our life is a blessing. So often I have found myself taking it for granted. Every hug from a family member. Every laugh we share with friends. Even the times of solitude are all blessings. Every second of every day is a gift. After Saturday evening, I know I truly understand how blessed I am for each second I am given.

    How sad she'll never realize her dreams. She sounded like a wonderful, warm, witty woman with everything to live for, including a loving family and her hockey player boyfriend.

    I know they are working on releasing the names of the other victims and we can help get all their names out there too when they're released...

    This is the actual blog entry about the Toronto shooting Jessica escaped. The last two paragraphs are haunting. I just fell in love with her bubbly personality from reading her view of the world. It truly breaks my heart that she's gone from our world, but for some reason I can see her trying to communicate to us that she made it to the other side and she's alright.

    Many reminiscences from friends and former colleagues of Jessica Ghawi here, at Deadspin.
    ---
    Last year, Busted Coverage asked Ghawi why she used the professional name Redfield. She responded "It's my grandma's maiden name. She always wanted to be a journalist, never had the chance."

    Colorado shooting: Jessica Redfield was a passionate journalist—and a good friend

    Jessica Redfield was going to be a sportscaster, and she was going to be a good one. She was sharp, funny, enthusiastic and had the kind of passion for sports and journalism that makes people succeed.
    The world is a worse place without her after the movie theater shooting in Colorado that robbed all of us of a chance to see her reach her goals.

    Micayla Medek, 23, was also among the dead, her father’s cousin, Anita Busch, told the Associated Press.
    Busch said the news, while heartbreaking, was a relief for the family after an agonizing day of waiting for news.

    About Micayla

    My name is Micayla, but everyone usually calls me Cayla. I'm a simple independant girl who's just trying to get her life together while still having fun.

    In the chaos of one of the largest mass shootings in U.S. history, one local woman’s brother and her boyfriend shielded her. She suffered a bullet wound to the leg, her brother escaped physically unharmed but her boyfriend was killed.

    Siblings Samantha and Nick Yowler — both former St. Paris residents — were watching The Dark Knight Rises at a theater in Aurora, Colo., with her boyfriend Matt McQuinn when JH reportedly kicked in an exit door, released canisters of pepper spray and opened fire.
