“Yeah, if there’s a shooter, you shoot her,
so that way there’s no more shooters, right?
What does that make you, then?
A hero who could only stop her
from falling any further
and saved everyone else
by staining your hands
with the blood of someone
we could’ve saved,
but was too late to do so,
so we said, just shoot her.”
I can’t believe some people really think violence on top of violence, death on top of death, is the answer; it’s not, it’s only a response to the moment, it’s not the solution to the core of the problem…
Yeah, I can see how it is necessary to arm the “good people” and send them out to shoot someone else who’s also shooting, but in a “bad way”. I mean, when people make that the only option left, then duh, it will happen, because it’s too late to stop the damage (and heal, which do we ever do?), it’s too late to notice the signs to stop and save them from falling from grace, and that’s why I’m so frustrated and upset.
Why do we let people be so damaged and notice too late (?) then send out our good ones and tell them to take the life of someone who is human, too, even if that human is so hurtful to the point where it drives that human to create more pain.
do you understand how serious of a request that is?
to take another’s life?
do you understand that not all pain & damage
can be comprehended by our eyes and brain?
I don’t understand why we make that our only option. I may never understand, and even if I did, I don’t think I’d be satisfied with the answer, ever.
