    The rally just ended for me....

    Because some idiot decided to shoot up a movie theatre in Colorado.

    Today looks like the best weather day too....it was 77 degrees when I left the hotel this morning. I should have camped. Uggh.

    I had a better time than I thought I would have. MOA and volunteers should be proud.

    ???

    Am I the only one who was not able to figure out what a shooting in Colorado had to do with a rally in Missouri to a guy in Illinois?

    Rally Ending

    I used to be on a "Critical Incident Response Team" that helped out with the consequences of incidents such as the shooting. The Red Cross also has a Disaster Mental Health group that could get called out for such an event (my team got called for Colombine). I can easily see someone "having the Rally end for them" if their job involved responding to evil incidents as this shooting.....-Matt Parkhouse, RN

    Since I just watched the network evening news broadcast live from Aurora, I'm guessing he wished he left his cell phone at home.

    So, a bunch of people were killed and we're supposed to feel sorry for you because you put it on the news?

    Why

    Why do some people on this forum have to be just plain nasty. It's ok if you feel that way about someone I hope it made you feel better to post such an unkind remark on this forum.

    Yeah I didn't mean to make it sound nasty. I just think it's too bad to have a job where what you do is so irreplaceable that no one else can step in and do it. I suppose that is good "job security" and if you love doing it, so be it, hey it's YOUR job. It would be kind of neat to have to go "intercept" your crew at some odd location of the country. Sounds like he got the "bulk" of the rally in, just not the grand finale and drawings.
    I never really got the impression he was looking for pity.

    Tell me what I misinterpreted.

    I'm sure the victims families were a little more inconvenienced about the whole situation than a guy missing a day of a motorcycle rally to report to his job.
