I was sad about the attack but now I am angry. I too had friends there and I feel guilty that I was relieved that they were ok?? There are 22 families out there who don't get the same relief I did and that's bullshit. We keep being calm and carrying on and yet these bastards just keep attacking us and killing our children. And the government retaliates by killing their children??? What kind of fucked up world is it.
I’m fuming too honestly. And I’m glad I’m fuming, because they want us scared but I’m not scared, I’m just angry as fuck.
What’s fucked up is that a lot of the time, the attacks in Europe are committed by people born and raised here that become radicalised. And then after, we retaliate by attacking the countries the people radicalising them are from. And then it continues in this tragic cycle of innocent people being killed.
Wild idea, but maybe we target the people getting radicalised and the places it’s happening. Maybe we look into the college and university system that’s not doing enough to hinder this. Maybe we question and look into how social media is allowing for educated people to be talked into leaving their families in the UK to marry men twice their age in Syria. Maybe instead of violence - which clearly isn’t fucking working - we try a different approach. Maybe instead of just cutting off one head and waiting for two more to take it’s place, we target the reason so many heads are able to take their place.
