Jessica Ghawi was one of the fatalities of the Aurora shooting. She was a 24-year-old aspiring sportscaster. Just over a month or so ago, she was at the scene of the Toronto mass shooting where one man died and 7 others were injured. She posted a blog entry about it back then, and this passage tells how she avoided becoming a victim then:

My receipt shows my purchase was made at 6:20 pm. After that purchase I said I felt funny. It wasn’t the kind of funny you feel after spending money you know you shouldn’t have spent. It was almost a panicky feeling that left my chest feeling like something was missing. A feeling that was overwhelming enough to lead me to head outside in the rain to get fresh air instead of continuing back into the food court to go shopping at SportChek. The gunshots rung out at 6:23. Had I not gone outside, I would’ve been in the midst of gunfire.

It seems particularly cruel to have escaped then, only to succumb to a similar fate now.
