Why Must People Kill? Let's honor the dead this week and always.

I was visiting my boyfriend this weekend and was catching up on the news and was so sad to hear about the killing in the Batman movie theater.  What a terrible thing!

Why do people have this inner drive to kill others?  I just don't understand it.  Why must our world be filled with terrible people who only want to do wrong?  There is simply no need for it.  The world needs to really crack down and see that these people see justice done to them.  I'd like to see all their evil thoughts get buried down to the earth's core.  And I'd like to see the sun change and kill them.  Well, not that I want to see the world meet it's end, but it would be nice to kill all evil.

The world is so corrupt and has been since time began.  Look at all the bloodshed wars we've gone through the centuries.  And people have been killing others since time began.  I would like to have a pleasant thought that their spirits never made it past heaven's gate.

There's so many killings going on every day.  We almost don't want to watch the news as we know there has been another group of people who have met an untimely death.  Whether they've been killed by others or met with a terrible accident.  Seems like this is the daily norm.  It's a crying shame.

I have often felt a little bit self concious walking into a McDonald's or a mom and pop convenience store.  We have heard of so many mass killings of someone walking into somewhere like that and killing.  What goes through their minds while they are popping bullets out of their nasty guns and seeing blood splattering?  Not a happy feeling.

Look at the Columbine murders.  That was not called for too.  And this kind of mass killing really traumatizes people.

I can't imagine what it has felt like for all those people watching that Batman movie and then to hear terror in the aisles.  Probably popcorn and soda crashing to the ground, shots ringing in their ears, screams and shrieks.  The horror of their terrible reality.  And now, the survivors are waking up every day hoping that it was just a nightmare and it is not.  It's real.

Every waking moment, families are now grieving for the loss of their loved ones.  And for what, I ask?  Because there was someone out their carefully planning this killing spree and acting on his impulses of a sinister, corrupt mind.

And now, the dead go in the ground, spirits soar to heaven where they didn't really need to go right now.  All they had wanted to see was the new Batman movie.  And the movie lasted longer than they did.

Let's honor the dead, wish they were still here, and pray for the families who now have a void in their lives that is going to last forever.  I know the feeling as my Mom isn't here.  A void doesn't ever go away.  It's with you every minute of your existence.

And let's promise them that we will all try to make our lives and others a better place for the rest of our days.

Take a moment out of your day to honor all that are missed.

  1. Thanks. It's just a really sad thing and it's too bad that people have to die at the hands of someone who wants to do bad. But I guess that is the way our world is. People die everyday and then a child is born at the same time as a life is taken. That's life.

  2. Praying for many! Thanks for sharing!

  3. So terribly sad. I just don't understand! Very thoughtful post.
