Oregon School Shooting

So once again, there was another mass school shooting in America. This past Thursday at Umpqua Community College in Oregon, a reported nine people were killed and another 20 were injured by a shooter who was also a member of the school. The shooter then committed suicide. This is a constant problem that seems to occur every other year: someone gets mad about their circumstances in life and decides to make other people as miserable as them. These acts of terrorism always seem to stem from an individual that feels that their motive is that they feel they are being oppressed by their peers, when in actuality they are just sick individuals that just want to start chaos. And it’s this main idea that makes it so hard to understand exactly why someone would go out and do this to people that have never crossed their paths. I wish there could be a solution to this issue but sadly, this is just the world we live in. People like this will always exist. The times we live in now have shown people that each day is not promised, and that we must allows keep our eyes open.
