    The Pointlessness of Violence

    I was no more than 5-6 years old, the first time I can remember clearly thinking "can't we just get along" in the face of boys who wanted to "have a fight." The name of this group seems appropriate, because I truly do DETEST violence. It seems like one of...

    Violence And The Recession Of The Human Being

    I hate violence and I always have. I think it's mainly because I was brought up in a household that abhors violence. I feel no enjoyment in watching violence on television, movies, or anywhere else; yet, I know it's not true of everybody. There are a lot of people who seem to...

    The Third Monday In April

    . . . . The third Monday in April is a special day in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. For citizens here, we know it as Patriot's Day and, to my knowledge, we are the only state in the United States that celebrates Patriot's Day. Patriot's Day commemorates that day in 1775 when...

    The Pen Is Not Always Mightier Than The Sword.

    I believe that there are times when physical violence is necessary because there are people out there who are not deterred by verbal warnings. People like Hitler. Imagine what would have happened if the Allied forces had opted instead to attempt to "negotiate" with Adolf. Neville...

    It Gets Old

    I find myself lately not even being able to watch violent movies anymore.  It makes me mad.  I do detest violence and anymore there is so much of it that it is easier just to shut it all out and not deal with it.  I don't even look at the news anymore.  I can...

    Never Got De-sensitized...

    Well, I guess the title says it all. My parents were very picky about what we were allowed to watch on television, and consequently I never became de-sensitized to violence. As a high schooler, I remember a fight would break out and throngs of kids would rush towards the scene...

    I don't understand why there's war?

    Why do people kill and why can't people settle it all with words? Why is everything not about who's right it's about who's left? Why do people fist fight? It doesn't show you're prettier, stronger, or smarter. It takes one man to start violence and one to end it. You're no...

    why are people creating so much havoc and are so barbaric. RIP to the people in France who died tragically. Good work by the police officers who killed those murderers. La violence ne donne rien!

    ..but I Am Very Good At It.

    Makes me soooo sad to hear, that a baby boy was shot by a man who invaded his home while he was asleep and shot this baby boy and another family member.  How sad is that? Makes me sick. :(

    Why do we kill? I know the answer.

    We kill for stuff. Stuff like our belongings, our lives or our countries. We do not want to lose what we worked so hard to get. We use death to protect what we have; what we rightfully earned! Why do we kill? Why can we not give up our earthly belongings? We can't bare to think...
