I know there’s been a lot of stuff here about the Aurora shootings.
But I didn’t want this to get lost. This is the response to my ramblings about that night from Caitlin, a cosplayer, comic fan, and survivor of that horrible night.
It’s moving, a remarkable post from a remarkable woman, someone I was lucky to meet just a few weeks before at the Denver Comic Con, where she and a friend, the equally wonderful Melinda (who also responds a bit earlier in the thread), cosplayed as Secret Six members Scandal Savage and Knockout, particularly.
My husband and I were absolutely in love with them both immediately upon meeting them. Even in a crowded convention, it was very clear that they were both very special people.
Thankfully, they survived, but one of their friends, Alex Teves, tragically died a hero, throwing his body on his girlfriend’s, to save her life.
Caitlin here speaks a thousand times more eloquently than I ever will. Please read.
