The news headlines read:
4-year-old, fatally shot
By his 6-year-old brother, who got his tiny hands on a glock
And our eyes just skim right over the page, without blinking
It’s sickening that this is the world we live in, this world we created
Where these actions are so common they become white noise in the background of our daily lives
I want to take society by the shoulders and scream “Open your eyes!”
One by one we will kill each other off
And we will only have our own ignorance to blame for our destruction.
This is the way the world ends
Not with one bang,
But with multiple.
