It’s not my country, but that doesn’t matter. We are one world, one planet so when tragedy strikes it affects everyone.
There is no place for guns in society. Forget the amendment, “rights”, it’s bullshit, a law written for a different time and a different world…..
Time has moved on, things have drastically changed.
Hello! There were no semi automatic weapons back then!
What about those children’s rights?
The right to go to school and expect to come home alive.
To be here right now….to be here Christmas morning opening their presents.
What about them?
It’s not just the guns no.
It’s society as a whole.
Morals and values declining….disintegrating.
I’m not religious but I have to wonder if the loss of religious values within our cultures are contributing to this disintegration of society.
Sure there are religious nutters too, those who twist the holy words (of any book) to suit their own agenda’s, but overall…to have no faith, nothing to remind people of our connectedness and the value of adhering to basic rules like “thou shalt not kill.”
Rules that we NEED as a society.
But moreso than that, it’s all the lines we have allowed to be crossed.
The glorification of violence, everywhere! Shoved down our throats at every opportunity, along with sex. Sex and violence go hand in hand.
Movies, TV, music,video, books, THE INTERNET.
The Internet is a biggie.
A pandoras box we have opened here with the internet, and it will never ever be able to be closed. We are only at the beginning of discovering the consequences of what all this freedom of information will truly cost us.
Today, a society that is all about “me me me”.
MY rights! Stuff society as a whole!
Screw- “for the greater good of mankind”…the big picture.
No, its all about ME. I want it all and I want it now!
We’ve become so intrinsically selfish with attitudes of “I deserve!”
The media too. Glorifying these sorts of horrific crimes.
Pushing people to almost celebrity status, not because of their GOOD deeds to mankind, but because they have pushed even further, crossed yet another line, because the one before wasn’t shocking enough.
Tragedy has been transformed into entertainment.
So this is the reality of the big picture now…
This is the consequence of all those screaming mouths crying “it’s my right…you can’t take MY rights away….”
Children are slaughtered, senselessly, needlessly.
What a waste of life.
What beautiful amazing, worthwhile things could they have gone on and contributed to society?
I’m so sad and so angry.
