i feel so sad about the virginia tech shootings..(and i also feel so sad about how many people have died in this war…this unnecessary war.) it’s all so sick. all so depressing.
i don’t know how to deal with it… and the way the press covers all of it…so much of the discussion in the press is meant to tittilate….
one newscaster was asking a girl about the virginia tech shootings and
the girl said (i’m paraphrasing here), "so i heard gunshots, lots of gunshots, it was hell, it was scary"
newscaster says, "did you see the gunman?"
girl says, "no, i didn’t see him, i heard the shots, had to be like 100 shots at least."
newscaster says, "did he try to come into your room?"
girl says, "uhhh, no he was in the stairwell…we were just being quite."
i felt like this newscaster was trying to get more drama out of her story- wanted the girl to say she was almost killed but wasn’t…
the newscaster seemed almost disappointed that the gunman didn’t try to get in to the girl’s room… i don’t get it.
this story is horrible….nauseating…just so upsetting.
it is too damn easy to get a gun in this country.
