So was just sitting here thinking about the events that took place over the weekend. I think, after reading (possibly too much) information, I am left feeling...kerfluffled.
There is NO question regarding the loss of life. That is just wrong.
I am all for the right to bear arms. "But no one needs a gun that fires that many rounds"; yeah, only to BATTLE a gun that fires that many rounds. "He aquired the gun legally"; but if asked the purpose, am PRETTY sure, they didn't say they were going to kill a bunch of innocent people.
Bottom line, the respect for human life is what I see lacking; but Power and Control don't take that into consideration. This is where MOST religions get it wrong - yes, I said it!!!
There's a meme that's been going around Facebook for awhile: "If your religion requires you to hate someone, you need a new religion." Here's another: "GUN VIOLENCE does not exist. Guns do one of two things...function or fail. Violence is from the heart."
I like to make people think. Honestly, yes, who does NOT want everyone to think the way they do; but realistically, it's not going to happen. It's NOT supposed to. However, if everyone goes around annihilating all who don't think like them; the population is going to start shrinking really fast.
We're all different, we all have opinions - my opinion being different than yours does not negate yours; I may not like yours - my opinion being different than yours does not negate yours. But, there does come a time where you just don't need to hear "all negative, all the time". Just as it's ok to have your different opinion, it's ok not to always share it. I'm sort of digressing here, so will end it.
This is just me trying to process several recent events. Take from it what you will...
"...is love, is love, is love, is love, is love, is love..."
Have a good day, and be safe...
