My Thinking’s on this Sunday December 16th, 2012…

hot-cup-of-coffeeMy Thinking’s on this Sunday December 16th, 2012: Sveta has gone to her mothers and I am here doing some thinking’s as I sip a cup of coffee. I was saddened at the deaths of so many children in America (Sandy Hook Elementary School) and am angered at the fact that someone would even contemplate killing children, much less go through with killing children…

I watch the media in America and I watch the reactions of people in America. I really have only one thing that crosses my mind and I see that this same issue has crossed many many minds all over the world. It just seems that many Americans can not see what everyone else is seeing…

I guess I will put it in how I look at what has happened…

I had tears of sadness that so many children were gunned down like caged animals. We are not talking about adults here. We are talking about elementary children around the 2nd grade. We are talking about adults trying to find safe places to hide and lock the children away to keep them from being killed. We had numerous amazing adults who saved a whole bunch of children from sure death. The point to me was that this was as horrendous and terrible as anything that can happen and I am very saddened by what took place. I have a heavy heart from the deaths…

Now the part that Americans do not think of and do not want to hear. The very few that are bringing it up are being slaughtered by the rest of the Americans. What is it that can not be said?

What no one in America wants to hear is that everyday, children are killed like this all over the world and many many times we Americans are the reason behind those kids deaths. We are the instigators and producers of death all over the world…

So I see a nation (US) that deserves to grieve over the children’s deaths. It was sick and it was very wrong…

I blame media, I blame Americans, I blame desensitizing, I blame morals, I blame government, I blame myself, I blame media, I blame video games, I blame warped values, I blame a over medicated society, I blame the whole damn pathetic system that we have allowed to grow beyond an entity capable of performing rational functions…

But as Morgan Freeman said:

TURN OFF THE NEWS…….

Morgan Freeman’s brilliant take on what happened yesterday :

“You want to know why. This may sound cynical, but here’s why.

It’s because of the way the media reports it. Flip on the news and watch how we treat the Batman theater shooter and the Oregon mall shooter like celebrities. Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris are household names, but do you know the name of a single *victim* of Columbine? Disturbed people who would otherwise just off themselves in their basements see the news and want to top it by doing something worse, and going out in a memorable way. Why a grade school? Why children? Because he’ll be remembered as a horrible monster, instead of a sad nobody.

CNN’s article says that if the body count “holds up”, this will rank as the second deadliest shooting behind Virginia Tech, as if statistics somehow make one shooting worse than another. Then they post a video interview of third-graders for all the details of what they saw and heard while the shootings were happening. Fox News has plastered the killer’s face on all their reports for hours. Any articles or news stories yet that focus on the victims and ignore the killer’s identity? None that I’ve seen yet. Because they don’t sell. So congratulations, sensationalist media, you’ve just lit the fire for someone to top this and knock off a day care center or a maternity ward next.

You can help by forgetting you ever read this man’s name, and remembering the name of at least one victim. You can help by donating to mental health research instead of pointing to gun control as the problem. You can help by turning off the news.”

I blame a sick society that will not start to heal until they look around themselves and start becoming aware of what is happening. No one is too far gone by propaganda, that they condone death of children in a foreign country and condemn that same way of dying in America. Those children are the same children and have the same young, fresh, exciting minds and long lives ahead of them…

(If you do differentiate between the two types of death, then maybe you need to look in the mirror and there you will see the problem unfold before your eyes. For we must condemn death in either place…)

But I see a society that has come unglued and grieve over the deaths at Sandy Hook and yet they ignore and actually degrade the deaths that we cause by the thousands and thousands of small elementary children all over the world…

Well I for one grieve for all of them and I for one have said a whole bunch about how messed up we are in America, right here on these pages in this very blog you are reading from right now…

U.S. drones have killed 178 children in Pakistan and Yemen, according to War Costs. The organization received the information from reliable sources, including direct participants of the air raids, reports huffingtonpost.

War Costs representatives communicated with the children who survived the air attacks. The discussions have resulted in “Drones Exposed” documentary. “The U.S. drone war in Yemen and Pakistan will long remain in the memory of local people, especially those who have lost 178 children on the battlefield,” says Robert Greenwald, a director and a member of Brave New Foundation.

You should grieve just as much and just as hard at these deaths that we cause in other countries. Those deaths are just as important and just as serious…

For those deaths of children are unforgivable, no matter where in the world they happen and we, as the greatest country in the world, should be better and above the killing of children by any means…

“War and collateral damage” is just excuses for chicken $%#& warmongers that sit and play, “armchair army…”
