Note: Just found out Morgan Freeman did not say this… It is a hoax.. going viral, still a good message & may awaken many!!!   ❤ ツ  I apologize Mr. Morgan & to readers.  Joy~*



“You want to know why. This may sound cynical, but here’s why.

It’s because of the way

the media reports it. Flip on the news and watch how we treat the Batman theater shooter and the Oregon mall shooter like celebrities. Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris are household names, but do you know the name of a single victim of Columbine? Disturbed people who would otherwise just off themselves in their basements see the news and want to top it by doing something worse, and going out in a memorable way. Why a grade school? Why children? Because he’ll be remembered as a horrible monster, instead of a sad nobody.CNN’s article says that if the body count “holds up”, this will rank as the second deadliest shooting behind Virginia Tech, as if statistics somehow make one shooting worse than another. Then they post a video interview of third-graders for all the details of what they saw and heard while the shootings were happening. Fox News has plastered the killer’s face on all their reports for hours. Any articles or news stories yet that focus on the victims and ignore the killer’s identity? None that I’ve seen yet. Because they don’t sell. So congratulations­, sensationalist media, you’ve just lit the fire for someone to top this and knock off a day care center or a maternity ward next.

You can help by forgetting you ever read this man’s name, and remembering the name of at least one victim. You can help by donating to mental health research instead of pointing to gun control as the problem.”

  2. Donating to mental health research will not do. Research facilities in mental health are very prone to be controlled by the owners of pharmaceutical industry and its lobbyists. That’s the difference between psychologists and psychiatrists. The latter do it with drugs, which definitely won’t help in this gun-frenzy of empathically disabled youngsters. In short: America needs a program qualifying empathic skills for all young ones. Then children in the “danger-zone” will experience support, get some sense of achievements and meaning/motivation in social contact. Simple as that.
