Unfortunately, this is the time of year when depression, stress and tension and other negative emotions run at an all time high. Suicide spikes during this time of year. For me, it’s depression, yet I never take it out on others, and if I do, it’s non-violent.
Are we paying attention to what’s going on? MOvie theater shooting earlier this year. The recent school and mall shootings? Even my own locale doesn’t want to get left out, but in true Sac-Town style, we can’t get this right, thank goodness. Instead of bullets, we throw fists. A bunch of quasi-gangsta-posers decide to get all “up and at it” and caused a bunch of small fights all over the mall at the same time, causing the mall to go into lockdown, but opening a short time later after all the idiots are arrested and hauled away.
Having seen a couple of Nathan’s videos, including one just 6 months old, it’s hard to imagine someone looking so young and vibrant being the victim of such a violent end. My only guess is that whatever it was, regardless of fault, it wasn’t done intentionally, at least as far as his involvement.
Last year, before Thanksgiving(2011 for historical purposes), a sister in law of mine was shot in a case of “shoot and spray” gun violence targeting Asian gang members. Odd how the probable target was never hit, yet 2 others were. One was hit in the thigh and was fine quickly. My sister in law took one through the chest, only surviving due to fast EMT response and being like literally within 1 minute walk to the ER(although she got an ambulance ride). She made a full recovery, by the way.
In general, society is lacking decency. Respect is at an all time low, but has a long ways to go downwards, unfortunately.
Now yet another family is saddened via loss. The odds are this loss could have been completely avoided. My condolences and sympathies extend to his family.
