My heart is heavy and sad today. Why to these tragedies happen? I don’t want to refresh our memory of recent massacres, but it seems to happen more and more often. Why? We go through our lives with our families, our careers, our loved ones, and bam! We get this “hiccup” of sick, heart-wrenching news that is horrific and unthinkable. We get hit with unnecessary tragedy and loss caused by man.
I didn’t feel right to just chat it up with you today about my haircut and color, the latest purses I’m obsessing over, blah blah. This definitely puts things into perspective of what matters in life. And those “things” do not. My heart aches for innocent lives taken way too soon, following one of their passions, all because of a man’s intent to take the lives of others.
I just wanted to take today off of material things and just pay respect to those hurt and to the families who lost their innocent loved ones in today’s horrible bombing in the Boston Marathon.
When will all of these “hiccups” end? WILL they end? What can we do as a society to prevent it from happening? It sickens me. Makes my hairs CRAWL and gives me CHILLS to think of what those families have experienced. Literally, makes me want to hurl. Being someone who experienced the Oklahoma City Murrah Bombing up close, in person, right there, I relate. I see so many things that I think contributes to society’s “mental” state of mind that mold who these people are that leads to the crimes that they commit. As time moves on, sadly enough, it seems as if more and more of these massacres/bombings/shootings occur. Why? TV? Movies? Media? Even things like Instagram? The images that have NO filter that anyone can see with NO rating system? …. I’m just venting as a mom that is disgusted by the things that are out there and not regulated, with no filters, and those same things are molding the minds of our future adults. I’m sad. Just very very sad for all of it.
Carry on about your day. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again (just like your mother, right?). Cherish your loved ones. Practice the golden rule. We never know when we’ll take our last breath. Sending my prayers for a speedy recovery both physically and mentally to those hurt, and prayers to the families of those lost so innocently to cope with your unnecessary loss.
