I may not be American, I may not be homosexual, but one thing I share in common with everybody else living this tragedy is that I’m human.
I don’t watch the news, I stay away from current events because I can’t handle the pain, the suffering of so many. I can’t support the fact that we watch the news for entertainment purposes, not because it has any accuracy.
I found out about this on WordPress first, but now I’m watching all the people I love watching on YouTube, speaking about this with such pain. Because the YouTube community was also affected by this massacre.
This is Christina Grimmie, she was shot 3 times. She is most well known for her singing, and I believe she went pretty far on The Voice in 2014. She started making YouTube videos when she was 15 years old, she had over 3 million subs and was finally recognised for her vocal talent. I am 25 years old in a month, born in 1991. Christina was born in 1994, making her 3 years younger then me. And in that time she gave back to the community, she donated to charity, started events, she achieved more in her life then I have, then most people get to. And she was gunned down in the prime of her life. She didn’t even get to reach a quarter of a century…
FIFTY people died, this is one of the biggest massacres that has happened for a long while. If I knew every person I would’ve written about all of them.
I could go on about how outrageous and sick this whole massacre is. But this isn’t what this post is about. There is too much pain and suffering right now everywhere, and I don’t want to be part of it.
This is just to say, man, I hope this starts getting people to think, because the world is going in an incredibly scary direction. And at this point of time, while there is so much anger and pain around us, it’s more important then ever to be kind. To be understanding, to be empathetic. The world doesn’t need any more anger.
This is the straw that broke the camels back though. There is still clearly a major fault in our humanity, and that is the ability to adapt to new things. No matter what you believe to be right or wrong is your option, if you don’t agree with gay marriage, that is your opinion, it’s not an incredibly nice or useful viewpoint, but it may not necessarily make you a bad person.
But if you kill, rape and abuse what you don’t agree with in the name of morality/religion/whatever the fuck excuse you have to be a judgemental fucking cunt, then you are the very black and white definition of fucking EVIL.
I’m going to post a video by Boogie, who is my favourite vlogger on YouTube, he sums up all of what I want to say.
To all my American friends, I just want you to know that we are all affected by this event, and there are people with hearts all over the world that are bleeding for all of the people suffering from this horrible tragedy.
This is more then just an American problem, this is the side of humanity that needs to change, and fucking quickly, before we lose this Earth entirely.
In this world and reality, homophobia, racism and sexism are all OLD ideals. It’s time for those old ideals to die.
