It seems as if there are more, and more of these shootings happening. One right after another. In places we all frequent everyday. A hotel, a mall, a
theater, a school, a hospital, and countless others. I've never considered myself to be afraid of anything. Not death, snakes, spiders, or anything.
Though with these shootings, I can feel the fear building, and I'm doing my best not to be afraid, but it's really hard. I live in a small town that
has all those buildings I listed, and it's going to be really hard to go to any of those, and not think about those shootings, and wonder if something
like that could happen where I am. I'm pretty alert, and watchful when I go out. I don't know what I would do in that type of situation if something
did happen. I'm sure I can't be the only one that feels this way. With it being 2012, who knows what could happen. I do know I can't take much more of
these shootings. I've been watching American Horror Story, and normally I can watch shows like that, and know that they aren't real, and I can enjoy
them. In one of the episodes, there was a scene of a shootout in a library, and gun fire. My mind immediately jumped to the mall shooting we recently
had, and that gun fire reminded me of that, and I thought that must have been almost like what it would be like to be in a shooting like that. That
was a very hard scene to watch. What do you do with fear like this? How do you push through it? I don't want to live my life being afraid to go
