The first thing that hit me when I saw the word costume was a covering to hide the truth.
I was thinking this morning listening to the latest updates about the school shooting in Florida. They are blaming this happening because the teen had a death of a parent. Stating was also heard that the culprit had an unhappy life.
I thought back to when I was a teen. No one shot others because they were unhappy or had deaths in the family. What did my era do when there was sad situations? I remember hangings, suicide talk, going to boys school. Girls got pregnant or ran a way.
I am not saying that any of these words are a reason for anything. I am just trying to imply that teens in my day hurt themselves. They didn’t go out of their way to hurt others so they could feel their pain or get their name in highlights.
The news said we, the citizens, are getting used to this news of school shooting. Well, I can tell you, I am not getting used to it. It causes me great disturbance. It causes me to think about the family life and lack of it in homes today.
Family split is not the reason behind the bad things that happens today, but I do believe the separation of family, is a good lead that continues on to sometimes permanent and mental damage. Drugs, alcohol, lack of being able to discipline, over-crowded schools, leading to lack of need for those who need extra attention all lead to that one thought that ask, Who the hell cares anymore?
I pray harder. I ask God to heal hurting hearts. I pray for God to let all see who he is and how he can help. I am one person and I ask myself, What can I do, just me alone? I don’t have the answers. I think of so many ways to change things but the truth is, only God can put this country back together again, along with a great President and congress working for the people, with the people and by the people.
We have way too many costumes out in the world with colorful masks, guaranteed to hide the real pain. It’s time to change. Come on President Trump! Come on people! Let’s kick some ass and change things!!!
