Deeply saddened by the days events

Mostly all the garbage I have heard being spewed out of the mouths of those I call my fellow countryfolk. How on earth do such hate-filled people live in the world I live in?

So much tragedy, and on top of it what do we hear? MORE hate.

Our country is full of mentally ill people, that is all i can say. A 9 year old child was murdered, a judge, a 30 year old engaged to be married, two elderly people in their 70's, and a pastor. Plus over 12 other victims, half of whom are now in critical care and still at risk of dying.

All of their families must be totally devastated that a mentally ill young man did such a thing.

and all the majority of people on the threads of articles can find in their hearts to say is "THIS IS YOUR FAULT" with the most utterly venomous rage, pointing fingers and hatred, the very thing that caused this thing to happen today.

I am sickened in my spirit beyond belief.

Risposte

A gunman went to a rally by Gabrielle Giffords and shot both her and it sounds like about 20 other people, at the present time 6 fatally, before being stopped by others by being wrestled to the ground.

-----------------------

What kind of reality do we live in where monsters hide behind every otherwise innocent day?

Not by a long shot am I saying "me me me" as if locked into self-absorption. what I'm saying is...this was very close to home and it's scares the be-jesus out of me.

it never ever used to be like this. and yet today? this kind of thing happens at fast food places, restaurants, post offices, grocery stores, malls, in private residences, on the freeway, at concerts, in schools, on flights - it's everywhere.

this is what happens when you glue people 24:7 to the television. when magazines like RollingStone turn from being a music medium to being a vehicle to pump political agenda into the homes of the masses. when media interferes with government we are in trouble.

that people jump on this kind of tragedy and push political rhetoric without thought reminds me of Stalin or Hitler era stuff. i shiver to my soul.

idk. i'm tired. it's been such a hyper night of sleeplessness. so many thoughts, so little sleep

Wow. You're not alone, blades. There are so many things wrong with this world, I can't even believe it. War, murder, suicide, genocide, discrimination, terrorism, many things that are all linked to two things: hatred and pride. And what's sad is that there's people who don't even care. They're all like "Oh, it's not me, why should I care? Let them solve their own problems! We do!" No matter how hard anyone tries, there's always gonna be something else. Wars can start from simple things like religion, politics, race, and ethnicity. People hate the president of whatever time they're in so much that one selfish lunatic murders him. People hear the news and are furious, but they don't even do anything to try and stop it. But then again, what can they do? Except hate? I myself actually used to hate people at school for stupid reasons like insulting me or getting me in trouble, but only because I was really bad with bipolar disorder. Medication has helped greatly though, and has even led me to an epiphany, that I'm going nowhere by just hating and being mean to people who are actually nice to me, like people hate me for no reason, and I'm working hard to change myself and mature, unlike some other people I know, like one who was more mature in 8th grade than he is now, in 11th. Now if the rest of the world can have their epiphanies, maybe we can all feel safe. Remember Communism? It's still around today, everywhere. I'm talking parents and teachers who censor what their kids or students see, say, and do, like it's gonna have any positive effect on them. And then they wonder why their kids hate them. I've been writing this for like three quarters of an hour. I guess this is enough for me.

I'm glad you're doing that Asylum. I am trying too.

It has been like looking into minds of someone like Hannibal this past 18 hours. I was transfixed by the sheer amount of hatred and venom coming out of the people posting on articles. Several hours lapsed, in fact a day has, and I visit to find some of them are still there spewing the exact same hatred and inciting violence.

To me? It is that kind of person who is a danger to our society imho. They're dogged, seething with hatred and spewing it on the masses purposefully. I do not like that kind of a soul.

To me, they are the future mass murderers, rapists, abusers - people who loop. It is a sickness, and we unfortunately have to coexist in reality with minds like that. It is horrid.

That, my friend, is why I am a loner. And have always been one. When they do personality profiles and I answer the questions, two things come out. a) I have an uncannily keen knack to identify people for who and what they are about, and b) I tend to not want to interact too much.

It's not from hatred, it's from a desire to control what comes into my consciousness. I don't need toxic abusers, so I tend to control access to my inner zone.

Anyways. Thx for sharing. I have been somewhat beyond comfort here for some reason. It is nice to know a little candle flicker is out there at times like that. You know?

I pray for the families of those victims. All my love goes out to them. I know all to well how much hatred is out there. I think most of us do. I also pray for anyone who has any form of mental illness. I have a mother who suffers from paranoid schitzophrenia and a younger brother who suffers from it as well. My mom is in an asylum as we speak getting treatment. My younger brother has learned to stay on his medication partly from watching some of the crazy stuff my mom does when she refuses to take hers. Mental illness can be controlled in most cases through proper medication. These antipsychotic medications have side effects as most medications do but they are usualy a lot safer than what can happen when they don't take them. I am pleading to all patient's of any sickness at all, please take your medication as perscribed. Your families and society wants you to stay healthy. We don't like to see just how bad you can get when you refuse treatment. Peace to all!

Unreal.

Why should this: <a href="http://www.npr.org/blogs/thetwo-way/2011/01/11/132831892/angels-will-counter-westboro-baptist-protests-at-arizona-victims-funerals">http://www.npr.org/blogs/thetwo-way/2011/01/11/132831892/angels-will-counter-westboro-baptist-protests-at-arizona-victims-funerals</a> be necessary?

We can't obviously call upon decency, not from political positioners who care more about their rabid mission then decency.

ALL CONTROVERSIAL THINGS RELATED TO THE CROSSHAIRS/PALIN THING OR THIS TYPE OF THING SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED WITHIN 1 MILE OF THIS EVENT. PERIOD.

Ah, the Westboro Baptist Church sticks their hateful noses in things again. Using a lyrically changed Crazy Train was outragious, but this, this is just plain hypocritical and one of THE most infuriating things I have ever read/heard. Oh the child was born 9/11/01! She MUST be a messenger from Satan! Actually, I doubt she really was, because they're just spreading propaganda. If I was at a funeral for a relative who was at war and those hate filled excuses for human beings showed up, I literally, without question, would go up to them and punch one of them. Hopefully, they'd start hitting me, hopefully so hard and repeatedly it'd kill me, just so they could get sent to prison (Gran Torino anyone?) or even executed (which is what I'm hoping for). Maybe others across the country would join me, until they're all put away or executed. Here's hoping!

apparently alot of people share that feeling and act on it. that is how they stay solvent. then they sue you or if you're underage your parents and take everything you have. they are purposely trying to incite people to get mad and touch them so they can sue.

I'm certainly not defending the man, but please don't play into the old stereotypes about the mentally ill. Mental illness is an actual illness, that is usually treatable. And, only a small percentage of the mentally ill are violent (a much smaller percentage than the general population). Poor journalism, as well as the ever-popular horror movies about "escaped mental patients" do not help this stigma, which modern nations should not continue to ignorantly support.

Some murderers are just evil, and are not mentally ill (but they may try to hide behind a mental illness defense). They are supposed to go to prison, instead of psychiatric hospitals for the criminally insane. You may deal with mentally people every day and not even realize it, because they have been successfully treated.

A MEN SISTER

Well, I hope this guy is tried, found guilty by a preponderance of evidence, and swiftly receives the death penalty. I don't care if he is mentally ill. We fail the victims and survivors when we put them up as prisoners for life. They should know when they pull the trigger that if found guilty their lives will be cut short too.

Good song. And so true. But the simple answer is never. Or at least not sometime soon. Mankind may never finally understand what they're doing to their own kind and the other species around them. Not to mention themselves.

I have learned to go inside and comfort myself. What is done is past, and it can't be changed. That's reality. Not just shooters take life away. Cars do, inebriated drivers do, even happenstance accidents do. The important thing to remember and take comfort from are all of the people around us who would never in a million years dream of doing something intentionally malicious to others. Love and human decency are the common threads that tie us to one another despite anything else.

Who knows why someone chooses to do such a thing. However, nothing that is done to harm in the end goes unpunished. Even if it isn't here on earth. I do believe that. And, crossing to the other side can't help but be experienced by those who have fallen as very loving. They await us all...
