the grave reality of a selfish humanity

Okay, so I lied. I had to check my regular internet sites before I went to do any work.

And I was saddened to stumble upon yet another man-shoots-entire-family-then-kills-himself story, this time, from Miami.

What is going on? I know people have always been crazy, and crazy things have always happened, so I shudder to blame it on the times. In the Bible, in Ecclesiastes, it is stated that "nothing is new under the sun," so it really can't be that these things are just new.

But, I just don't understand. What could ever possess you to just shoot people? Maybe because your life ain't going right... so you decide it's everyone else's fault, including your own (I guess?), so you kill everyone you see, and then take yourself out as well?

When did this become the right answer?

I just don't get it. When I was a kid, these type of stories were the grim, horrible exceptions to my young news-watching. Now as a young adult, these type of stories are grim, but the norm.

And guess what... the childhood news-watching I'm referring to was but a mere decade ago.


Adios loves,
