This idea was started on Facebook, apparently by someone named Jonathan Jared Adams, and it is an idea worth pursuing:

This is an excerpt of an article from MSNBC.com:
"Aurora is a suburb less than 10 miles east of downtown Denver and just 15 miles northeast of Littleton, scene what had been the worst mass shooting in Colorado: the Columbine High School massacre on April 20, 1999, when two gunmen killed 12 fellow students and a teacher and wounded 26 other people before killing themselves.
The suspect was found in possession of a helmet, a gas mask, a tactical vest, throat and groin protectors and black tactical gloves, authorities said. ...Gov. John Hickenlooper said at a news conference that 'our hearts are broken as we think of the friends and family of the victims of this senseless tragedy.' He called the shootings 'the act of an apparently very deranged mind.'"
The full article can be read from the link at the bottom of this page.

There is evidence of real life villains all over the world, and during times like these, it is easy to despair and lose hope. But Christian Bale, you have the chance to make a difference to the people who love your films, and the character you portray on screen. Batman is legendary, and by showing your support by donning the cowl and cape of Batman, you can show these victims that this is not the end, and that the evil in the world may get a person down, but evil will not prevail.

According to the person who started this idea, "...They need to know heroes can be real, too, not just the bad guys. You have the power to be a Hero right now, not a movie hero, a real-life flesh and blood one."

I would also like to say thank you to all the law enforcement officers and hospital staff who provided help to the victims of this attack. My heart goes out to the victims and their families during this time of grievance.

      To show that there really is still good out there. We are led to believe that heroes only exist in the pages of a comic book, on tv or in a movie. The victims have already unfortunately had to witness a terrible villain, let's have them know that there really are heroes as well
