Keep your chin up.
Thanks. Like I said I don't know any of victims but it upset kind of because incidents like this are pretty uncommon.
But tragedies like this bring out some thoughts and questions. Society of today emphasises a lot of values like efficacy, superficiality and consumption. On the other hand you have to be prosperous, strong and perfect so you could succeed in your life. There aren't a room for a human weakness. Then the society wonder when youngs, a group of people in a tender age, feel bad. Is it any wonder when the state of the world is which is it? It's hard to think that the group of moms and dads, siblings, friends, bfs and gfs whose hearts have been broken, have been grown today.
Aside that, sometimes it seems that an individual has been forgotten and governments treat people like a human stock. Some allocaions here, some there. It doesn't matter if some sector doesn't get enough to fulfill its needs (like there are lot of youngs who need more support for their life, but no. There aren't enough resources for them. Like mr. Auvinen, the previous shooter. He was a dropout who had learned Friedrich Nietsche and other extremist ideologies. Then he resulted in that he is some kind of superhuman who can kill weakers. Who would lead youngs like him a narrowe path?) I understand that when there are a lot of people and governments have to try to insure an equal righs for anyone, they can't empahsise an individual endlessly. But in my opinion they would still try more harder than now.
And the other thing which ashtonish me is that the police knew about the plans of the gunman of today. The man was questioned in a police station yesterday but they didn't take his gun/ gun licence away or informed his polytechnic about his plans.
I'm just thinking that.
