AURORA, Colo. - Two people who survived the movie theater shootings in Aurora, Colo., hope to turn the terrifying memory into a positive one this weekend.
Kristin Davis and Eugene Han will marry one year to the day after the shooting rampage.
"The day that we could have died is the day we get to spend the rest of our lives together," Davis said.
Their date to the midnight premier of "Dark Knight Rises" turned into a nightmare.
Bullets hit Han in the hip and the knee as he shielded Davis with his body.

It took him months to recover -- much of that time with Davis at his side. She suffered only minor cuts and scrapes.
Saturday -- one full year after a gunman killed 12 people and wounded 58, including them -- the couple will tie the knot.
"It was a night of, you know, terror and horror and all of that stuff,” Han said. “But we wanted to change the date and kind of make it our own."
Han tells CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight" that he proposed months after the ordeal and Davis said yes.
"It brought me back to that night and how he did kind of save me,” she said. “Of course, I want to keep him around."
Their love for each other strengthened through tragedy, two people who have known each other since elementary school look to turn this painful anniversary into one built on happy memories.
