World coming apart

What is our world coming to? First, the movie theater shooting, then the school shooting and, now, bombs in Boston. This makes me sick.

Not one person should have to worry about being shot or blown to pieces when they are away from home. Killing people for no reason is horrible. Innocent people watching a movie, little kids at school, people getting exercise running a marathon; next thing you know “bam,” they’re dead or injured.

We need to put a stop to this soon. Our nation is going downhill, and it’s ridiculous. I mean, come on, people. Don’t kill others. Things like this need to stop now.
