Senseless

On Friday a man armed with three guns killed his own mother, then walked into an elementary school in America and started shooting. Twenty children aged between five and ten were murdered, along with six of the teachers, before this bastard finally turned the gun on himself.

Holy shit.

What? Why???

What the FUCK was going through this guy’s head that he would do something like this. They were children. Little fucking kids and they did not do anything to warrant something that brutal. The survivors have lost their innocence; it was torn away from them as they watched their friends bleed to death in front of them.

And we will never know. We will never know exactly what was going through his head.

These were kids just a little bit older than the ones I teach. They were kids the same age as my nephew.

What did they do that pissed this guy off so much he felt he had to snuff out their precious, innocent lives? What the FUCK is wrong with this world.

I know there’s all sorts of arguments about gun laws and crap in the States at the moment. You know what? I don’t think anyone should own guns. I don’t think guns should exist. But that’s not the point. The old saying, “guns don’t kill people, people kill people” rings particularly true here. What kind of life did this guy lead? What was wrong with him that no one noticed? How does a guy become so fucked up he’d murder twenty children in ten minutes without anybody noticing?

What is wrong with this world?

It’s senseless.
