Have you ever heard the term, Sticks and Stones. I imagine that most of you have. It goes something like this. Sticks and Stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me. Something so simple, I bet it is forgotten. I feel like people no longer use this saying in their daily lives. Maybe we should...maybe we should throw away everything we have come to know and just throw it all away.
There's been a lot of bad things that are happening in the US of lately. What with the shooting in Connecticut and other small incidents all over the place. It almost seems like the world wants us to not enjoy this Christmas. I mean even my little sister's high school has a threat today. Some kid saying he's gonna come to the school loaded and shot everyone. I want to know, what's wrong with this picture. Why are people threatening the lives of others? The lives of children above all else.
If these people, these human beings feel the need to shot something. Why not choose another outlet for it? Why not choose a shooting range or hunting season? Something that doesn't involve killing another human being. I know times are tough for everyone. Trust me, I'm struggling with a car payment. insurance, and a college tuition that all needs paid. Not to mention the smaller items that require my attention as well. But we can't let the pressures of life steer us in the direction of destruction.
If you find yourself in need of someone to talk to. Please reach out to someone. It may seem like no one cares but the truth is everyone does have a spot in their heart waiting to let you in. We as humans either turn people away or let people into our lives. If the world wasn't so messed up. We'd want to help everyone and that's how it should be. We truly should not say oh they do not need my help. What if secretly on the inside they are sick and they are seeking help the only way they know how. Not everyone can openly tell the world, hey I'm sick and I need help. I don't want to end up doing something I'll regret.
I believe everyone needs to open their eyes and start noticing the people who need us the most. They could be right under our noses.
