One of the victims' posts make the tragedy seem all the more human.

I don't know Jessica Redfield. Never met her or, to my knowledge, encountered her on Twitter.

But her Twitter account is still up a day after she was one of the victims in the Aurora tragedy yesterday. Several of her posts leading up to the tragedy are heartbreaking. In her posts, she sounds like a nice person. It's tragic that she was one of the victims.

5:27 p.m.: Never thought I'd have to coerce a guy into seeing the midnight showing of The Dark Knight Rises with me.

10:22 p.m. "Of course we're seeing Dark Knight. Redheaded Texan spitfire, people should never argue with me.Maybe I should get in on those NHL talks..."

10:37 p.m. MOVIE DOESN'T START FOR 20 MINUTES

(I'm assuming, since I'm on the West Coast, I'm seeing her posts in Pacific rather than Mountain time.)

And maybe the hardest to read ... on July 16, she said she was going to be a godmother for the first time. "Kid doesn't know what he's in for."

Note: I apologize if this is inappropriate. If it is, please delete it. Just reading her posts struck me that they should be shared.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
