We consume so much negativity our natural ability to adapt and create a positive is becoming shattered.
People are killing themselves and eachother like I have never seen before and it scares me. What scares me most is that CHILDREN are doing this too.
The number two cause of death in teens 18 under is fkn suicide. Let that sink in. The number one? HOMICIDE. If they aren't killing themselves there killing eachother!
All these kids connected with an artist. over 2 million youth followed this kid. ( yes he was 20 -TWENTY- but to anyone who is 25+ you know that to call ANYONE in their 20's a "mature adult" is a joke) An entire legion of kids vibed with someone who AT SEVENTEEN said; "Wanna fuckin' end it, pessimistic
All wanna see me with no pot to piss in
But n*ggas been excited 'bout the grave I'm diggin'"
Can you imagine? Wanting to turn it around and instead the fame exciting those around you to encourage you to further dig your own grave just so they can consume what you will have? Can you imagine no one loving you enough to tell you to stop not even at 17?! We tell them to, love and care and grow but in our hands we SHOW different. We say love because you don't want to end up like so and so not loved. We say care but it's better to share because for every share someone somewhere will at least pretend they care 🤔. In one of his songs XXX said ""I'm the only one stressed
I'm the only one tired of having fake friends
Put the noose on my neck
And the hole in my back, again
I've been waiting on death with a smile on my face" for millions of people to have followed him on just insta and as a number one artist, clearly his solemn pain and ache for real humanity was and is felt by many. To me everything from Columbine to the public shooting and subsequent humiliation of Jahseh Onfroy is the audible cry from the cold abandoned baby in the wild that has become humanity.
Karen Mallard probably thought the publicity of her destroying her AR-15 would do wonders for her campaign. After all, as a Democrat in her primary, such an act was likely to appeal to her base on a visceral level. Further, her actions made headlines, which I suspect was part of the goal. After all, how else was she supposed to attract funds from outside of her district?
Well, she tried. She tried and failed. Spectacularly.
Karen Mallard, a teacher running a low-budget campaign to win the Democratic primary for Virginia’s 2nd U.S. House District, only picked up 37 percent of the vote on Tuesday against the better-funded Elaine Luria, a former Navy officer who runs a Norfolk art studio. With all precincts reporting, Luria grabbed 62 percent of the votes and will face Republican incumbent U.S. Rep. Scott Taylor in November. “Congratulations to Elaine Luria for winning the Democratic Primary tonight,” conceded Mallard. “Good luck in the General Election. I look forward to helping you defeat Taylor in November.” …
While the gun control group allied with former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown organization may have thrown their support behind Mallard, Luria got the nod from Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee’s Red to Blue initiative which helped balloon the Navy vet’s fundraising, causing Mallard to insist that she was “not getting a fair shot.” Continued ⬇️⬇️⬇️
