I'm not crying over the shooting

Yes, it was a terrible terrible thing that happened, children never deserve to die, especially such a gruesome death. In no way am I saying that I don't care about what occurred: I feel for the families, it's very upsetting, but, I'm not crying about it, I don't hold rage for the killer, I'm not going to lose sleep over it, and I'm definitely not going to be holding any paranoia towards the safety of my children. Shit happens, some people shouldn't be allowed to walk this Earth, but this doesn't mean I have to let those worries rule my life.





I'm not heartless, I just react differently from most others. Anyone else feel this way?



***edit

I've read a lot of people saying I don't feel emphatic. No where do I see crying to describe the definition of the word empathy.

******edit
my twins are 5. If this happened to me personally, yes, I would be absolutely distraught, but I wouldn't blame anyone who didn't get effected by it the same way I would.

Everyone has their own way of coping, doesn't make you a bad person. I feel differently, but that's me. I cried.

It has hit me hard. But I think that it is because my kids are 5 and 6 and some of those babies were the same age. But I will still send my kids to school and I am not going to change our routines. But it still hurts and I have cried. Mostly thinking about how close it is too Christmas and those parents having to look at presents that will never be opened.

I am not like you, I don't think you are horrible or bad though.

I just can't help but cry when I hear the words of other greiving people. When I see those pictures of parents who just lost their children. I just can't help it. I feel confusion when I think of the man who did this. How could he do that?? HOW could he look at those innocent CHILDREN and fire the gun at them?! Why why why???

It's just no fair! And to try to imagine sheer terror of those children and parents, it's just unimaginable! Ijust can't imagine running to that school to find out one of those children were my child. How do you let those words sink in?!

Well you know, your way is not the only or the right way. Everyone has to deal with this differently.

And you felt it necessary to post this why? You had to have known you were going to pour alcohol on a wound that's gapping open or you wouldn't have posted anon. Feel however you want but Stfu.
