The events on Sunday night in Las Vegas breaks my heart into a million pieces, as it should anyone with a soul. It is apparent to me that this country has a bigger problem than I thought. I knew it was bad, but when people respond with posts that say they have no sympathy for the victims because they were country music fans and that most country music fans are republican, it shows there is no hope for this world. If it were meant as a joke, definitely not funny. If it was meant as a serious commentary, you are a soulless person with so little hope for this world that you must thrust your arrogance and ignorance in other people’s faces.
These people are the same people screaming for gun control and professing their non-violent natures. There is something so wrong in our society when it reacts this way. There was a time this country came together in a crisis. That time is not now. It’s just another reason for people to snipe at each other. Those saying such things are pathetic pieces of crap. Rant over. Prayers for the victims and all those who loved them.
Nonviolence means avoiding not only external physical violence but also internal violence of spirit. You not only refuse to shoot a man, but you refuse to hate him. Martin Luther King, Jr.
