There’s something I want to show you guys:
What do you think of that? It’s kind of a chilling thought, huh…
It’s kind of strange….in a sense, it’s our fault that this kind of thing happens. Maybe ‘Evan’ wouldn’t have done what he did if he had been surrounded by people who legitimately cared about him, not the kind of superficial friends that we have and are today.
How many of you can say that you are the best kind of friend you can be to all of your friends? I certainly am not. Any one of them could open fire on my school, my class, and it kind of scares me to say this, but…I wouldn’t blame them.
There is so much hate, anger and fear in our high schools, so many outcasts that no one cares about. All those quiet kids, the loud rebellious ones, the popular kids…none of it matters. It’s only a matter of time before one of them/us/you/I/he/she snaps.
I’m not going to pretend to know what the solution is. Obviously, you can’t befriend every person you know in your school in the hope that they won’t kill anyone. It’s not going to happen. And soon, you’ll forget about this video and move on with your life, and there’ll be another shooting and a suicide, and everyone’s gonna say “We had no idea…he didn’t look like the kind of guy to do that.”
Were you even looking at all?
