So here we are, another deadly workplace shooting, another gunman with a history of violence, another chance to offer prayers to the victims’ families, to find the silver lining in individual acts of heroism, yada yada.
Honestly, I’m over it. I’m tired of the national ritual. I’m not feeling sorry for anyone anymore. I’m not doing it, I refuse. I simply don’t have the energy to go through this fucking ritual every three months.
America, you have a problem. You have a mental health problem, you have a violence problem, you have a gun problem. Either deal with these issues or don’t. But stop asking me to give a fuck anymore.
This is the society we’ve asked for by refusing to address our national problems. We’ve chosen to argue over petty shit instead of doing the hard stuff and fixing what’s broken. So this is what you get. Stop acting surprised.
