This morning's shooting in a Colorado movie theater casts a heavy cloud over a weekend many fans of the new Batman movie 'Dark Knight Rises' had been looking forward to for months. The sadness extends well beyond the Denver, Colo. suburb, as men and women across America -- including country stars -- are voicing thoughts and prayers for the families affected. When you experience tragedy in your personal life, which song or songs help you heal?

Today's readers poll asks just that. We've included just six country songs to select from, but if there is another that has led you out of a dark time in life, please tell us about it in the comments section below. The songs we've chosen include popular funeral songs, as well as one or two that make you appreciate your friends and family and how fortunate you are to have them.
