gun violence - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
Using gun death statistics from 2019 in the USA and the average height of a human head as 8.5 inches, if we decapitated all the victims of gun violence and put all of their heads of one big spike it would be as tall as seven Empire State buildings, taller than nine Eiffel towers and would dwarf the Burj Khalifa by a whopping 3.7 times. It's just that, dear gun lobby, you aren't building this gruesome monument for God, are you? You are lobbying for the creation of literal hell on Earth. Who do you really worship? I think God needs an answer.
Gun violence on television is not a cause yet a catalyst and the difference is important. We are a role modelling species. We learn most effectively via mirror neurones. We evolved to find it easier to repeat what we have seen rather than do things we have not seen yet only thought about. This is how society is moulded, that along with storytelling and linguistics. Thus gun violence on television, violence in the media, matters because it reduces the energy required in our neurology to act in the same way. This is how the brain works and how societies are made. The catalysts need to lower the activation energy required for kind and loving acts, that's function, that's how we make a better human society and begin to save our planet.
Disarm or you "dis" the arms of Christ. Carry only arms of love, the ones your creator endowed you with and not tools for the sin of killing. This is how you respect Christ. Gun violence is a demonstration of faithlessness and it's high time we thanked Him for His sacrifice by following the example of love and teaching love.
Gun violence is the raping of God's soul. It is the shattering of all that is holy in the name of fear, greed and evil indifference to suffering.
The gun is the route of the devil, for it trains the soul to learn indifference for killing. It is thus the mark those whom have gone astray. The army of God takes actions only from love, armed with good words and deeds, the champions of the pen and never the sword.
Gun violence is a symptom of a world where love itself is fired upon, where the mother has not safe sanctuary to love her child, the resources and support she needs for the child to grow up safe and well. The gun is the "truth" of a world that is savagely competitive even as we sing of cooperation. The gun is the cancer in a world where fear is the driver and love is tied up on the back seat only able to whisper good words of comfort. Only when the guns are surrendered can love take the wheel and fear the back seat.
