As we are all aware, there has been one to many senseless killings throughout the entire world but more specifically in the city of Chicago. We decided to repost an article/letter that we wrote to any person who has ever attempted or even thought about taking another person’s life away. This article/letter was published almost a year ago, we decided to repost it today after personally experiencing the lost of a fellow classmate and supporter. Rest Peacefully, Nycole Loving and everyone else who has been a victim of gun violence.
Take a moment to think about what you’re actually doing before you pull that trigger. Ask yourself,
“Is it really that serious?”, “Why am I really mad at this person?” , “Is it really worth taking their life away?”, “What’s gonna happen to my life after this?”
Are you really that much of a coward that you feel the need to even use a gun to handle a dispute? Do you actually think that makes you tough or a neighborhood hero? What if you try to shoot one victim and mistakenly shoot an innocent, defenseless child, woman, or man? How could you possibly live life another day knowing you took away someone’s loved one? How can you sleep at night? How could you even eat? How can you ever walk the streets in peace?
What about the victims’ loved ones? Should parents really have to bury their kids because of your hatred and stupidity? Should your victims’ kids have to grow up without a parent at a very young age when they need them the most? How you expect for the significant other of that victim to go on in life without having their backbone next to them at night?
Oh, is it that you don’t care shooter? Did you become a hero in your “friends” eyes? Your “friends” are really proud of you huh? Did they shake up with you afterwards, as if a job well done? Did y’all laugh, drink and smoke and talked ish about what happened? Is that something you will be walking around bragging about?
So now the police were told that you did it and now you’re sitting behind bars? Oh your loved ones crying because the judge gave you life in prison with the real ruthless criminals who are really insane? Did your “friends” forget about you already? Have you had any visitors? So now, are you just living to die behind bars with nothing really to live for?
So now that you had a moment to think…will you still shoot, shooter???
