I’m to the point where I just don’t give a shit anymore. This is our fault. Screw it. If we are’t willing to find out what drives people to mass kill and to stop them from easily accessing war weapons then why should I care? We humans are stupid.
I cared and was deeply affected in 1984 when that man went into McDonalds in San Ysidro, CA and killed 21 people. I still see the image of that boy’s bicycle tipped over outside the restaurant. July, 1984. I was 25 years young and pregnant. I was bowed over with sadness over such horrific slaughter.I had never heard of such horror outside war zone.
I was outraged when someone can kill 27 first graders and the good people of America don’t make necessary changes to stop what causes it (easy access to guns AND seriously demented (and RICH) kid who’s mental health was swept under the rich wall of plush carpet in the multi-million dollar home; I was saddened and furious when a racist punk walked into a Black church and communes for an hour during bible study and still kills 9 people. And the f’n cops let him stop at Burger King before taking him to jail. But when a rich White man can get a small arsenal of weapons up to his hotel suite and then kill 58 innocent people enjoying a concert I stopped caring. Why hell should I care? I knew nothing would change. It will be one week of paid talking heads on all the news outlets then crickets. Nothing changes. Maybe we’re so stupid we deserve this.
It’s just another week in Greatest f’n country in the world. Yee Ha.
