Yesterday, at school, just about the entire police department of my city was on campus because it is now mandatory that officers practice a school shooting drill which honestly just breaks my heart because I live in a state where guns come second only to God in terms of what laws people care about, so evidently it is easier to just anticipate such tragedies as mass shootings than to have sensible gun control. Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad they’re doing the training because I do feel safer knowing they have a plan, but it’s just unfortunate that this is our reality in which it is necessary to do so.
I wouldn't say it defies science and reality any more than any other faith. Most aren't claiming to physically be an animal, just the soul of one in a human body, which isn't any more farfetched than the concept of a soul in the first place. But i'm not gonna drill you about it or anything, i just thought it wasn't really nice to call something delusional when it's a really important belief for a lot of us.
