I only say what I feel. I said much the same when Columbine and Virginia Tech happened. I wasn’t online much for Columbine, so most was not behind a computer screen. I got scowled and got yelled at, but you can not deny that the shooters also lost their lives and their loved ones hurt just as much… in some cases maybe even a little more. I can’t say for sure as I thankfully have never been in a situation of that sort.
I think that is what is wrong with the world. We as a society have lost our sympathy. Just because a person is sympathetic for another doesn’t mean they believe what that person did was right, or wrong. It just means that you are sorry for what ever happened it to them. I don’t know… I just know that too many are quick to judge…. It is actually one reason I am not involved in religion…
Matthew 7:1 states
“Judge not, that you be not judged. For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you. And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me remove the speck from your eye’; and look, a plank is in your own eye? Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.”
Society is so quick to judge, but they lack the sight to see that we made these people who they are. People jump on the gun laws, but then bitch and moan when the threat of their precious metal toys are taken away. They scream “It’s the video game, movies, television and music’s fault” Which I LOATH this argument… Anyways, the blame the entertainment… yet what do they do? They run out and get 7-year-old Jr the latest new first-person shooter game and take him to see the new Star Wars, or Transformers movie. People lack accountability. Stop blaming the movies, game, music and television. Stop letting children dictate what they will watch, play and listen to.
In a perfect world, children would be 13 before hearing a cuss word. In a perfect world; children would have to turn 18 to see those violent R rated films, buy their very own M rated video game, or those Parental Advisory :Explicit Content CDs. But you see this is not a perfect world. Parents are going to continue to allow their children to play those game, see those films, watch those television show and listen to that music. And parents are going to continue to bitch when another school gets shot up. And so they shall. But please realize, that you are making these children who they will become. You can not blame objects until there is more Accountability.
