Today, another mass shooting happened in America.
13 people were senselessly killed, and 20 more people were injured.
Two journalists were killed on live TV a month ago.
Nine people at a bible study were killed in June.
This is the America we live in, today.
I'm so angry. Angry that people were killed. Angry that today's gunman posted on 4chan yesterday about his plan to kill other humans, and other users encouraged him. Angry that everyone will be up in arms about this recent shooting, but in 3 days tops we'll forget all about it while families still grieve.
I feel scared. I have two younger sisters. What if this were to happen at my older sister's elementary school? We all certainly thought something like that could never happen. Well, until Sandy Hook. My mother is a teacher. What if this happens at her school? Ohio State is a huge school. What if this happened here?
I'm dumbfounded. Why does this keep on happening? Why are politics involved in this space? Why are people arguing about their gun rights? Can't we all agree that something needs to change? Why are other countries laughing at us?
I'm confused. Why would people want to do this to others? Are people that twisted inside?
I'm numb. I don't even know what to do. I don't think most of us know what to do either. That's probably why everytime this happens, we return to our normal lives a couple of days later and forget this even happened. How can we change things? Is change even possible?
God, please help us all. And please help the families, as each day will be a new reminder of the terrible loss they suffered today.
