Like the summer swelter, coverage of the Batman massacre in Aurora was unremitting this weekend. The stories were horrifying. Tale after tale of loss and bravery and bewilderment fill the minds of all Colorado after a weekend when it was all we could think about.  

The week ahead promises more grueling images. Memorials, burials, and an arraignment this morning of the human bile who authored this misery. More on that later.  

This morning, we at the Peak join the rest of the nation in bowing our heads in prayer for the families of the victims. The week ahead, and the months and years too, promise to be more than grueling. Life will never be the same for these.  

But for these we pray for strength and peace, and for justice.
