As you may have already heard, early this morning a gunman walked into a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises and opened fire. 50 people were injured and 12 were killed, including San Antonio native Jessica Ghawi.
Ghawi was an aspiring sportscaster who worked in the media, and she also kept a blog of her own. And in a sad and stunning turn of events, it seems that her last blog entry was about how she barely avoided being at a shooting in Toronto last month.
In her final post, entitled “Late Night Thoughts on the Eaton Center Shooting,” Ghwai meditated on what made her leave the scene just minutes before a gunman opened fire:
I can’t get this odd feeling out of my chest. This empty, almost sickening feeling won’t go away. I noticed this feeling when I was in the Eaton Center in Toronto just seconds before someone opened fire in the food court. An odd feeling which led me to go outside and unknowingly out of harm‘s way. It’s hard for me to wrap my mind around how a weird feeling saved me from being in the middle of a deadly shooting.
