Because sometimes trauma is commonplaced…

Stones,

Another shooting.

Another pointless shooting that has shaken the US to its core.

And why?

This isn’t a case of mentally ill or not.

It’s a matter of why?

17 lives lost. Why?

Another suicide.

Another broken heart that couldn’t mend itself due to bullying.

This isn’t a matter of whose at fault. This isn’t a moral issue about if suicide is justified or selfish.

Why?

For me, this is just a constant reminder that I am not in control of anything. It reminds me of how prevalent pain is. It reminds me how important it is to hug my loved ones while I can. It reminds me how frail and fleeting life really. It opens the doors to a whole of revelations about the frailty of existence.

But who does that help? It doesn’t cure a broken-hearted helpless family. It doesn’t bring back 18 innocent lives.

A ripple effects. Countless lives destroyed.

Why?

 

Until Next Time

Bleed and Exist,

S.Hollisway
