Hi. I am writing this to talk about the Orlando shooting.. When we got home, my mom turned on the tv. We saw the horrible news. I was stunned. I didn't know what to do or say. Then about an hour later, i lost it. I was talking to my friend, Dogsrule5, and i broke down. She wrote about this too. I ran to the kitchen and sat down, my mom helped me understand something that i would like to share with you all.
" No one is born a bigot." Ever heard that saying? This means no one is born with horrible ideas or beliefs, they pick them up from their surroundings and the people around them. This man had most likely picked up his ideas from possibly the internet or something. He was a radical Muslim. The Muslim religion is very much against killing. I saw a man being interviewed on CNN. He was Muslim. He said that what the shooter did was very very wrong and was not appreciated at all.
My mom helped me understand something very important. She said that even in the most horrible situation, you must try to find the good in the situation, because there is always good in a situation, no matter how bad it is. You need to find light at the end of the tunnel and you should always try to keep yourself together a little bit so you can search for the good. No matter how bad the situation, there is always good. The hospitals needed blood to preform surgery on the injured people after the shooting. Hundreds of people, maybe even thousands began to donate blood to help. See? There is always some light at the end of the tunnel.
I hope that this advice helped you guys, because this really helped me. Remember to be kind and respectful to each other, and always try to find a positive in any situation.
