It seems a rash of mass shootings have plagued our country, starting with the Columbine High School massacre on April 20, 1999 to the more recent deaths on May 25, 2014 in Southern California. Was it the media filled “glory” of these killers actions injecting the same thoughts into the minds of future suicidal citizens? Or is it the “high” these monsters get from taking another person’s life? Whatever the reason, taking other people’s lives seems to be the “in” thing to do if you’re suicidal or just plain pissed at someone (or a group of people), in any given situation. The question is “Why?” Why take the lives of innocent people if you’re the one who’s having issues with what’s going on around you?
I haven’t heard anyone speak out on the topic, or question, that has troubled me for quite some time; “If you’re pissed about something and considering suicide, for Heaven’s sake, DON’T END THE LIVES OF OTHERS during your plan of action! It’s not only STUPID, but it’s a cop-out, a means of crushing family members, and a one way ticket to Hell! (For those of us who are religious)
I ask you, “you” being anyone contemplating taking the lives of others, “Why not get psychological help?” Instead of killing innocent people for ANY reason, STOP and take a breath; reach out for help. Think of the aftermath of your consequences. If you kill ONE person, including yourself, you’ll spend eternity in Hell. If YOU survive this rampage, you’ll spend the rest of your life in prison. Is this what you want??? Is this the life, or “after life” you’ve dreamed of? Don’t be a fool! Consider the before and after picture before you throw your life, and the lives of others, away.
You may look tough during your escapade, but it’ll be TOUGH on you afterward!
Let’s get this conversation going. I want to know what my readers’ thoughts are on the subject.
If you’re reaching out for help, I’m here for you. I may sound harsh but I have a heart of gold and am genuinely concerned for all.
Don’t beat yourself up, reach out for help.
