It doesn’t help the victims, the families of the victims and it doesn’t help me. It’s disturbing and upsetting and achieves nothing. If you want to help the families of the victims, please do so. Watching the worst of humanity on humanity helps no one. It only means the news media will feed more of it to you. The cycle will never end. I am not saying the news media is the cause, but it feeds and exacerbates the problem. The News Media LOVES the EVIL and the DEPRAVITY because it means more viewers and that means more advertising dollars. Don’t feed that Monster. Net benefit to you and to society for watching Tragedy on the News — ZERO. If you want to help, then help. If you want to resolve to become a better person to help make the world a better place — great. But I refuse to watch any more coverage of these mass shootings on TV or the Internet or anywhere. It’s very disturbing and upsetting, distressing and depressing and doesn’t help me or the people around me in any way. We can pray for the victims and their families and all of humanity. If you believe in the power of prayer, then please do so. I will. If you don’t believe in the power of prayer, that’s fine. At least don’t let yourself get sucked into this Vortex of Negativity. You will be doing yourself and everyone around you a favor. It is hard not to say anything any longer about these recurring tragedies. This is not the country or the world I grew up in.
Thanks for letting me share my thoughts on this matter.
