The way I see it... Children are MURDERED EVERY DAY....
The story's just dont make the news.
Yes yes, I under stand the difference between children that wear murdered in a school but at the same time....
# like this happens every day, its just not reported. If the masses only knew how dangerous the world is.
So yes I will talk about it politically not giving a damn about the people that wear killed because its apart of life. Accept it... Its not going to change, it never has.
Its nor good or bad its balance.edit on 14-12-2012 by Infi8nity because: (no reason given)

I do not get emotional often - but I am right now.
A school currently sits, somewhere out there, littered with the bodies of dead children. Children, for Gods sake... and, as I try to digest it all, and take it in. I find myself confronted not with a community expressing sympathy, shock, outrage, or a sense of tragedy and loss. I see several flourishing debates about guns and a lot of people more worried about their pistol than they are about human life.
It's like watching people arguing about their inheritance over another persons deathbed. To me it is revolting and could not possibly be more selfish or unsympathetic.
I have only seen one or two threads that seem to show the proper reaction to tragedy. The rest? To me are mired in a form of selfishness and self-interest that stymies and amazes me. To think that the bodies of dead children could be used as a political platform for ideologues. And so instantly.
It's disgusting. Shame.
There is a time and a place for such conversations. This event will likely spark such dialogue. But now? Before their poor bodies are even cold? Before they've been properly buried and their families allowed to mourn? NOW people feel the need to pipe up and start screaming that Obama wants their guns.
I find this reprehensible and deeply disturbing.
If we cannot put down our freaking guns long enough to mourn and bury dead children? Then what is the point to begin with. We're already lost.
Just my very heartbroken .02 cents.
