Thousands of people have lost their lives due to senseless violence carried out in the name of God or nation. It could be the advent of social media or the 24 hour news cycle that make it feel like something bad is always happening or maybe violence in general is on the rise. It has become commonplace to see grizzly scenes of violence and mayhem and it hurts my heart. Paris, Beirut, Mumbai, Baghdad, Afghanistan are just a few that come to mind. Our government and many others around the world do atrocious things. We pay for these acts with our tax money. We have to, it’s the law. Does this make us complicit? Do we have blood on our hands?

All of this shit is making me feel so sad and helpless.
