The first hint that something might be different this time came the morning after the shootings, from a Douglas High School sophomore named Sarah Chadwick, who informed the President of the United States, via his favorite medium, in words that quickly went viral, “I don’t want your condolences you fucking piece of shit, my friends and teachers were shot.”
Their grief was raw, their rage palpable. Emma Gonzalez, a senior at Douglas, had the most searing indictment:
“The people in the government who were voted into power are lying to us. And us kids seem to be the only ones who notice and are prepared to call B.S.
“Companies, trying to make caricatures of the teen-agers nowadays, saying that all we are are self-involved and trend-obsessed and they hush us into submissions when our message doesn’t reach the ears of the nation, we are prepared to call B.S.
“Politicians who sit in their gilded House and Senate seats funded by the N.R.A., telling us nothing could ever be done to prevent this: we call B.S.
“They say that tougher gun laws do not prevent gun violence: we call B.S.”
The crowd was now joining in.
“They say a good guy with a gun stops a bad guy with a gun: we call B.S.
“They say guns are just tools, like knives, and are as dangerous as cars: we call B.S.
“They say that no laws would have been able to prevent the hundreds of senseless tragedies that occur: we call B.S.
“That us kids don’t know what we’re talking about, that we’re too young to understand how the government works.” The crowd was now in a frenzy of anger and sadness, the people around me were tearing up as they yelled, “We call B.S.”
And then, in unison, the people gathered began to chant, “Vote them out, vote them out, vote them out.”
If you’re thinking about getting a dog, don’t get a dog.
Not until you read this at least.
Too many people get dogs for the wrong reason or at the wrong time in their life and it’s infuriating! Seriously someone told me they got a shiba inu because of the doge meme…. seriously??? And guess what, they were shocked to find out how much of a sassy asshole shiba inus really are.
If you can’t afford one please don’t get one, college students I’m looking at you. If you can’t take care of yourself, you can’t take care of a dog. And even if you can take care of yourself, you still might not be able to take care of a dog. Food, vet bills (getting them neutered, all their shots, medicine for when they’re sick), finding a sitter every time you leave town - AND you will leave town at some point over the 12-16 years of this dog’s life. Where do you see yourself in 12-16 years? Will you be getting married, having kids? Are you going to get rid of the dog because you’re having a baby? You might not think so but it could happen, I’ve seen it. These are things you NEED to think about before you invest in a LIFE as dogs are LIVING beings that have feelings. OH AND they’re NOT a gift. Getting someone a dog as a gift is so irresponsible because there’s no way of knowing whether they’re in the right position to dedicate 12-16 years of their life for this dog.
They’re straight up like children and they put your life on hold some times. They have to come first and you have to put them first and take care of them because they’re yours and no one else is going to do that for you. If you really love dogs, think about whether or not you’re worthy of having a dog before you own one.
Honestly if you’re still convinced you’re in a place to get a dog and you don’t have a steady income, house, or maybe even a family in which you’re one of the adults in this family and taking care of the dog will be a family effort as in your kids are already teens then please reach out to me so I can knock some sense into you.
