Americans Seem To Kill For Fun More Than Wild Beasts .
Now religion can no more be fantasy. Or is it? Just this year alone many people have killed themselves because they were bullied, and others killed their families: wives and kids either because they were losing their jobs or were having bad financial situations. A special condolence to Trayvon Martin’s and Ervin Jefferson's (two unarmed black boys who were shot because of the color of their skin and not the content of their characters) parents for their immense lost. Every person: criminal or not, is important to his or her family. However, people should not make the society to pay for their broken vases. No matter what happens to you, no one should be held accountable if you kill people or take away your own life. Every human being is different from an animal in that it has a conscience; even if it is dead. Before it came to die, it gradually progressed to that level. That means; you partook in the decision to erode your conscience to lead you to this level. Animals do not have a conscience. That is why they are not charged with murder. But why do people really kill? The first murder in the Bible was Cain who after meditating, killed Abel due to envy.
In the Alabama shooting rampage, Michael McLendon blames nature and society for his troubles and that of his family-mother. He believed to solve the suffering will be to take away their lives. Those who know about black plums will tell you that sometimes the plum is black and you shake the tree. Although everything may fall, one will refuse to fall. The message it is given to the harvester is that “although you think you can make everyone to fall at your timing, I will fall at my timing.” Many people think the government and society owe them something. In addition, they think the world is there to make them happy. Actually you owe the society and government, and essentially you make yourself happy.
A day before in Germany, a youngster took away 15 hopeful lives. He was frustrated definitely with the society and himself. People must learn that they will never ever always get what they want. If it does not happen, they should relax and look for another route. People keep getting horrified and shocked. If the poor man cannot sleep because of what the rich man is doing to him, the rich man will not sleep for fear of what the poor man will do to him.Now listen to this: if the black people cannot sleep because of what the white people are doing to them, the white people will not sleep for fear of what the black people will do to them. It is in the best interest of both groups to accept and integrate each other to live happily.
Therefore, humanity must take it as a responsibility to bridge the gap between happy and unhappy people. Many like Chikatilo, Jack The Ripper, Pedro Alonso Lopez, Henry Lee Lucas and Ottis Toole, and HH Holmes, Delfina, Maria de Jesus Gonzales, and Anatoly Onoprienko were very unhappy people. These names did not kill for nothing, and even if they killed for something, they took some innocent lives. While some people think the society should have helped others, we just know that they allowed their human nature to rule over them. The Bible says the heart of man is deceitful and desperate wicked and who can know it? (Jer 17:9-10).
I just do not agree that murder is committed due to insanity. In the legal jargon of murder, I do not believe it could be committed due to insanity since the murderer develops a plan and logic in executing his plan. Murder is done by sound mind.
April 2009 was a terrible month in the US with very many bizarre killings; from Melissa Huckabee to Philip Markoff; from the hotel murders to the murder by a professor. When they cannot kill others they killed themselves.
In all these deaths, the society bears the highest blame. People were never taught to face difficulties. Americans must memorize this proverb: “no condition is permanent.” Life has many faces. At times it may not look at you with a smiling face and that should not lead you to killing people and yourself. People must train their families to face difficulties. Tell them that life has several faces: the face that it shows you, use it with gratefulness that you are alive. Why does someone who has lost his job fear he or she might not have a place to live? That is because there is no relative ready to give them a free place to live. Why can’t any relative give them a place? Either they have ruined their relationship or they did not build one when they were happy. If you live as if there is no tomorrow, why do you expect to live when tomorrow finally comes?
Until then, there is just no reason to kill another person when life frowns at you.

People always ask me each time I meet a new person, “Do you have family here?” Sometimes, when I meet a white person, he or she always...
