A year later, survivors recall Aurora shooting

Tom Sullivan's son Alex was killed in the July 2012 Aurora theater shooting on his 27th birthday. Talking about his son and reminding people to appreciate what they have, while they have it, has given Sullivan some comfort during the past year. He also has testified in favor of gun control laws at the state Capitol and went to the reopening of the Aurora movie theater, an event many other victims' families boycotted, including Alex's widow.
