I know I can't be the only one who sees. Has anyone noticed that the last few times there has been an active shooter, he was taken down by someone who moved to interrupt the chain of events as the shooter perceived they would unfold? The shooting at the synagogue was stopped when the shooter was confronted, the shooter at UNC was stopped when the hero Riley Howell pinned him to the ground, and the shooter at the Colorado school was stopped when several students rushed him, Kendrick Castillo who led the charge was the lone student killed.I want to be very clear when I say this so that whoever sees this will understand. If you have it in your demented head, that being an active shooter is how you want to be remembered...know this. People are getting tired of your shit and whether or not they are armed, they will stop you and they will f*** you up and you will be forgotten. I know the names of the heroes. I struggle to remember the names of the shooters. Not because I'm ill-informed, but because they failed and therefore the news isn't highlighting their names. Their legacy will be that of failure and defeat.I have the weirdest outlook on the world. While I know it is a cold and calloused place where horrible things happen to people every single day, I also know there are good men and women, who will sacrifice themselves for others. So I both hate and love people because the penchant for human "goodness" or whatever...rare as it may be, is not yet gone from this earth and we've seen it in young men and women.I've watched the news cycle and seen that our future, although at times uncertain, is in good hands as long as men and women like Riley Howell and Kendrick Castillo draw breath.F*** active shooters.
