Did we and Are we learning from all of this?


The tragedy at Virginia Tech has left us dumbfounded and many of us are hardly able to comprehend the events that lead to this calamity. Once again I am led to be cynical, thanks to the media... 3:40 pm I get an alert from MSN messenger (not my choice of messenger, sadly that's what people at work use :( ) and as I click on the link I see in front of me, (I will not provide the link first of all, I can assume many of you already saw the article), well what can you say?? They got their coverage they got the documents sent to them by the killer discussing his issues and his videos and pictures about how effed up his mind is. Of course! let's run a front cover story on the mofo that just killed 32 people, and leave a little link somewhere in the 2 page article about the profiles of the people who died. Two pages so we can all see the mofo posing with guns and know what his issues were, and not a paragraph on the front cover about who these innocent victims were. I guess I am wrong in thinking it's a little more important to focus on how the ones who are wounded are doing or what those people who got shot were all about... but no
let's celebrate the shooter, the darker story. What will we learn from it? How will it make things better? Should people now be wary of loners? of Asians? How can you say that someone who wants recognition after being in a similar state of mind as this killer will not pull off something like this to get it? This made me read that article written by Marilyn Manson, and before you criticize me for mentioning his name here, you might want to give this a read Better than reading about the killer So here's a chance let's talk about the ones who have passed, and about what we can do to help.
