It is a tragic and painful day. I cannot imagine how the families might feel right now, but I wish them better days. A another school shooting. This time in an elementary school. This is disturbing and utterly devastating. The majority of all school shooting and crimes committed in this country were with the affiliated obtaining firearms legally. These horrid acts of violence occur so rarely in other countries. When they do it is through illegal activity. We as a country have the highest rate of school shootings. I’m not saying that other countries in the world do not suffer from this issue, but it is the unresolved mentality regarding the issue itself that plagues our society. Then again, in the long run, nothing has changed in our design. We are destined to kill each other; to devour and condemn. It raises questions of morality and ethics. As we shall hate and loathe the one that has taken away children from the earth, maybe in his eyes he thought what he was doing was right. It seems that in the hands of good and evil, they both possess a coin: each with two sides. They world way be getting worse, but it is far from ever being pure.
My friend Frank added to this discussion: “What no one else realizes is most or all of the people that have committed random school shootings were ON OR OFF psych drugs/medications, if anyone is gonna blame anything it’s the doctors or psychiatrists that have given these people drugs that has warped their, look up every shooting in the passed 20 years and most or all were on psychological drugs…Any body has the opportunity to kill, they don’t need guns, guns aren’t issue, I could find a few household cleaning products and make chlorine gas, which will melt eyes and lungs out , but I’m not psychotic and wont go doing that at a school, guns aren’t the issue , people are, like seriously gun control isn’t going to do anything it’s jut going to take away the rights of the people who follow it, if anyone is to blame its that mother
in regard to my friends’ insights I commented with this: That is a good point to add. While many are on what you say, then there are the one who have psychological and mental disorders. Oddly enough, many times the information of knowing if the suspects were or were not on medications is kept from the public by the media.now that you mention the gun control issue, i checked this; handguns and firearms are mostly illegal in the UK, be
GODDAMN do they have a shitload of knife crime. I will say this: Gun control and laws just cannot be put aside and be deemed “not the issue, that crazy fucker and his doctor is”. It’s still an issue. And given that anyone can kill, and anyone can use certain household items and farm tools, the majority of the killings are done by firearms. That fact cannot be ignored. I do appreciate your insight. I mean, I rarely have an opinion on this issue, so I will naturally be misinformed on the matter.
My friend Teresa brought up something else: “The world is starting to turn into a really shitty place. Humans seem to only know how to destroy themselves & everything else around them whether its nature, animals, or even innocent elementary kids… Sometimes I feel like the world should come to an end & hopefully can regrow after all the evils been washed out, but that’s just an opinion.”
I commented on this: As I am inclined to agree, I will comment and say this: The world has always been a cruel and evil place. It is the act of chaos that balances the muck and desolation. We as humans are designed to harm and devour each other. It is solely true when you compare this to the way we grow up in a time of callous dissemination. Coming to an end is what the world always needs once it reaches the boiling point; like a cleansing bath.
She responded, (Teresa) :”That’s why I sort of believe in December 21st or just the end in general. We kind of fucked ourselves honestly. If our own evil doesn’t eat us all alive, I’m kinda guessing some sort of natural disaster we caused with pollution is gonna happen. & who knows where we go from there
With that, My closing statement was this: As every generation, if not each century, has some defining moment that can be considers a global tragedy (e.g. the holocaust, 9/11, the American civil war, Rwandan genocide etc) that ushers in a time of peace of reconstructive stimulation. Something in the near future will catapult another serials of misfortunes that will realign the human condition. It’s like having an artist perfect and over saturate an amazing painting to the point of it being ugly, then after the artist has destroyed what could have been loved, an creative, untalented person stands into of an empty canvas, wondering what to do.
As the country mourns for this abominable crime, please consider this: Circumstances like this happen very often outside your world. So much in fact, that for some cultures it’s a common occurrence. Evil is here; It is everywhere. The question should not be, “Where did it come from?”, but “Where is the good?”
