Just minutes before the Colorado movie theater shooting suspect opened fire, Jessica Ghawi sent out a tweet.
She was like most people her age -- well-versed on social media. It's through that activity that we get a glimpse of the last moments leading up to her tragic death -- and a look at how she narrowly escaped death in another shooting just a month ago.
A vivacious young woman, Jessica Ghawi, who was also known as Jessica Redfield, was very active on the Internet, including dozens of photos on Facebook and more than 11,000 tweets on her Twitter account. She also had a blog where she regularly posted her thoughts about life.
Just hours before the chaos early Friday morning, the 23-year-old aspiring sportscaster tweeted that she had to coerce a male friend to go see the new "Batman" movie.
She also wrote that she expected she would be tired after seeing the late-night flick.
And just minutes before alleged shooter James Holmes opened fire in her theater, Jessica was having a Twitter conversation about the upcoming movie.
She tweeted in all caps "MOVIE DOESN'T START FOR 20 MINUTES."
That would be her last tweet.

But even more telling than those last words was a blog entry Jessica wrote following a mass shooting in Toronto, Canada, last month.
Her chilling account explained how she had missed the shooting by just minutes.
"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."
In that same blog, she went on to write how that Toronto shooting made her realize what a blessing life is and how lucky she felt that her instincts told her to take a step outside.
