Why is there so much violence in the world?

Why do we think that murder and carnage is the answer to everything?

Why do we allow the lives of our brothers and sisters to fall without a blink of an eye?

Why has it become so normal that a murder by the hands of the police is no longer news?

Honestly, learning about that poor man in America loosing his life in front of his girlfriend and their daughter for obeying the officers life is so heart-breaking. He was just going about his life and that officer took it away. For what?

That’s what I don’t understand. Why was the officer’s gun out in the first place? Why was he pulled over?

At this point in time it no longer matters. A man is dead and there’s no justifying that.

So many lives have been taken from us. So many innocent lives where they were in the wrong place at the wrong time. And you know what? The worst part is that these are not ‘terror attacks’. These are individuals with guns taking lived into their own hands. And that’s wrong.

Of course terror attacks are also plaguing the world.

So really, no matter how you look at it, people are dying at the hands of selfish individuals with warped ideals.

It’s days like this that I really wish I could climb into bed and hide from the world. It’s so upsetting and I can’t imagine how all those families must feel. To have your world torn apart for no reason at all.

2016 will be the year that history will see as a turning point – and not a good kind. If we keep going at this rate, 2016 will be known as the year leading to more war and destruction – you can feel it in the air.

And the worst part is that there is nothing we can do to prevent it.



I'm currently working my way through a Creative and Professional Writing degree in London.
