Unhappy Trying to make sense of it all

Just a sad, sad day. Unreal... Trying to make sense of it all, though how can we? And how can justifying it make it better.. It doesn't.. It is still a cruel, evil, horrible event.. How someone can inflict so many such pain, willingly.. Calculate and plan it ahead of time. And go around so calm and cold doing such horrible things.. I'm not able to understand it.. And I guess I never will.. Somehow that makes it harder. I'm so used to be able to reason, to make sense of the world. To draw conclusions, to look at things from different perspectives.. But this?.. How someone can do this.. Not only for a split second, but for several hours.. And planning it out for years.. I don't understand it.. I don't know how to think about it.. It is scary to think of that someone just like me.. Just like any other person I see in the street can turn around and do something like this.. And he's talking about us being brainwashed.. When he clearly is.. Or is he?.. Idk.. It doesn't make sense.. I don't think it ever will, even if I want it to... I guess we just have to do all we can to prevent it from happening again.. And stand up for what we want our society to be. A place where we can be free. Free to talk, free to walk, free to be together, free to disagree, free in peace, together. I try to have hope in humanity, still.. I hope we can all find hope in each other.

He was not like most people from our culture, Mitza. Not like you or like me. He does not see the world the same way or make choices the same way, though some of the ways that he justifies his actions might make you wonder if he does. He is clearly a Homo Sapiens, but we are not all the same. If you read history you will find that people have been doing incredibly cruel and awful things to others of our species for just about as long as there have been people out there.(You know this already.) Still, it is fine to not be like him, and realize you are not like him. What was done is a terrible tragedy.

Thanks, Hottea.. I'm not as scared anymore. I guess the feeling that we as a society are not like this, helps.. Seeing all the roses, candles, people being together and united. No matter who they are or what religion they belong to. It helps somewhat.. Gives me hope, I guess.

The trial begun today.. And while I do not want to give him the attention that he wants, I still need to know what happened. So many people died that day.. It is still quite unbelievable... So unfair.. So sad..
