Aurora Marks One Year Anniversary

One year ago Saturday, July 20, 2012, a gunman killed 12 people in a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado. The town marked the anniversary of the massacre with ceremonies and by asserting its place in the continuing gun-control debate. An event sponsored by the pro-gun control group "No More Names" on Friday culminated in a reading of the names of gun-violence victims. The reading lasted ten hours and ended at 12:28 a.m.—the hour the theater shootings began, one year ago. Other events held by the town—such as meditation and yoga—focused on healing wounds that are hard to close.
