It’s not the custom to post and discuss current events on this blog, but this story was simply too amazing not to share. A young composer, Petra Anderson, was attending the Batman premiere in Aurora last Friday when the tragic events we know all too well unfolded. Apparently she has an anomaly in her brain structure that may have saved her life. An amazing story that is still unfolding.
