Unless you haven't been paying attention, there have been horrible shootings here in the USA. People doing random shootings, cops killing blacks and I hate it. This is not the kind of world I want to live in.
My hairdresser and I got into a heated discussion last time I was there as she is a firm believer in gun rights and the 2nd amendment. Her family are hunters and that's how she was raised. I was raised feeding deer in the backyard by hand and that guns aren't something to have around. Although I do see the need to have hunters as otherwise the deer do starve if there is overpopulation.
This is not a post about that.
I honestly don't know what the answer is. The UK banned guns and they don't have the kind of violence we have here. But for that recent episode, the UK doesn't have this kind of widespread killing. Kids in schools, people fired from their job, or mad at their loved ones are using guns to kill and then kill themselves.
Why do you have to take others out? If you're that unhappy, take your own life, but why take so many innocents with you? I just don't get that at all.
Don't get me started on the random hate on social media. Strangers hating on strangers because you feel powerful behind the glow of the computer screen. I just don't understand.
Is this the world you want to live in? With this much hate and violence?
The other issue is the rampant racism right now in this country that I had thought was actually getting better, is now being stirred up with all the police who are targeting blacks for no other reason than the color of their skin. I will never know what that feels like. I treat everyone as equal, but reality is, people of color in this country have a harder time. I don't know the answers to all these issues. I just know that we as a nation need to realize this is not how we want to live our lives and do something about all this hate and violence.
We need to open a dialogue and talk openly about these things and really hear what both sides have to say so we can work together to stop all these killings.
Talk to me-let's talk about this. I want to hear what you have to say about this.
In the meantime, we will go to something totally unimportant in the grand scheme of things, nail polish. Although, this EP May 2016 is a stunner for sure.
Let's have a discussion-
Until next time people. Any thoughts out there?
