    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...

    ..but I Am Very Good At It.

    It is perhaps a bit ironic that I stumbled onto a simple truth. I was in the mother of all bad moods when three individuals wanted to give me a beat-down. I was ready to kill all three of them. Somehow they recognized this in me and decided to look elsewhere for fun. From...

    He Was Killed, a Baby :(

    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...

    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...

    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...
