The Shunning

16 Jun
The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and hoping for change.
Every single time there’s been a shooting, the shooter’s name and face has been plastered all over the media. In their own twisted way, the killers have achieved fame and notoriety. They didn’t have to work for it and earn it over a long period of time like the true Warriors throughout history. They simply pulled a trigger and now everyone world wide knows about them, and they’ll be remembered for years to come. It doesn’t matter to them whether it’s being remembered in infamy; the important thing to them is that they’re remembered. They died (or are locked up in jail) with the exhilaration of knowing that they’re singled out from all of the other faceless, forgotten people…some of whom being their victims.
Perhaps the next time someone decides to shoot innocent, unsuspecting people, the media should withhold that shooter’s name and pictures. Perhaps the media shouldn’t interview their friends, ex-partners or parents in a mock-attempt at “understanding the horror.” Perhaps they should be *shunned* with darkness and silence for their cowardly act instead of having a spotlight put on them.
The definition of “shun” is to persistently avoid, ignore, or reject through antipathy or caution. Isn’t this exactly what a murderer of innocents deserves? And yet the media constantly displays the name and image of the shooter, immortalizing them. I call it grossly irresponsible and immoral, and it speaks volumes about the people who operate the media and their true motives.
Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and hoping for change. Years ago I decided to try something different; I shunned the media when I saw that they had no intention of shunning cowardly murderers. I’m much happier for it, understand the atrocities that occur better, and rest assured knowing that my memory banks are reserved for heroes and Warriors, not cowards and psychopaths.
Shun on,
