Gang Stalking – My heart goes out to all the parents in Newtown, Connecticut.

I had to think two, three times before I wrote this blog.  Was I feeding into the frenzy of the moment?  Or did I have something to say that was of any use to someone?

At first, I thought the shooter was a target who’d gone crazy.  But  the more I read, the more I realize it was a young guy who appears to be autistic.  Gang stalking is what I write about, and thought I should write about the shooting.

But it seems the shooter was a person who was in pain.  And I know a lot about pain.  In the last four years that’s what I’ve felt — a lot of  hurt and pain.

The shooter’s name was Adam Lanza, and he was 20 years of age.

Adam forced himself  into the Sandy Hook Elementary School carrying 3 guns – a Glock, Sig Sauer (pistols), and a .223 rifle.  He randomly began shooting  anyone  within sight.

When Adam was through shooting, he shot himself.  And along with himself, he shot 20 children, his mother, and 6 other adults. A total of 27 people.

From the information I gathered, it appears Adam  argued with his mother, and shot her at their home. And then continued on to the Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Adam appeared to be a very quiet person and had very few friends; had a very hard time dealing with others and looking them in the face.  He grew up in a world where he didn’t fit in anywhere.  He wasn’t one of the “cool” kids.

I don’t know the truth of what caused Adam to take a gun and shoot his mother, or go into an elementary school and shoot little innocent children.  But I do know one thing, Adam was in deep pain, and the only way he knew how to get rid of the pain was with violence.

I’m not excusing anything Adam did, but I don’t really think he knew the cause and effect of the shooting.

It appears Adam had Asperger syndrome, and people with Asperger  have problems dealing with emotions. They can’t empathize with someone else’s problems.

So my heart goes out to all those innocent children and adults who were killed, too.  And my heart also goes out to Adam. He was a human being in pain, too.

None of us is perfect, and we shouldn’t judge others so harshly, because we don’t know what kind of  hell they’re going through. Remember the saying: Until you’ve walked in my shoes, don’t judge me.

And for now, I’m not going to judge Adam, because I haven’t walked in his shoes.

My heart goes out to all parents at Newtown, Connecticut who have to deal with the death of their children.  It must be the worse pain in the world to lose a child in such a horrible way. A child whose voice a parent will never hear again; nor hear his/her laughter; or know that the dreams the child had will never be.

I’m sure I’ll get some backlash for feeling some empathy for Adam, but I’m willing  to take what someone dishes out to me. I know what it is to be in pain.

Gang Stalking – Off Topic – PostaDay 2011 – Does technology help or not help you in the writing process?

One comical thing about writers and writing is they often ask each other if there is a secret tool, or software, they use that makes writing easier.  Some writers swear by a particular tool, or keyboard, or special software (or WordPress plug-in), while others see tools as ways to help with scheduling, or writing related tasks, but see the process of writing simply about putting the butt in the chair.

Now that you’ve written for a while, does technology help or not help you in the writing process?  What do you wish a tool like WordPress  could do to help?

Yes, technology helps me to write.  1) It tells me when a word makes no sense in a sentence; 2) It checks my spelling; 3) It lets me know when I’m not being PC (politically correct); 4) It tells me when I have no errors (which is not always true).

But..at the same time, it does not tell me what to write about (but I’m part of  PostaDay, WordPress, so it does).  But when I don’t like the subject, that part falls to me. While technology makes me technically a better writer, it doesn’t write for me.  And writing is the most important part.  When I write, technology does not help me get my emotions across to readers.  I, as a writer,  have to find the right words to get my emotions across (I don’t consider myself a writer).  All the technology in the world cannot do that for me.  Computers are static things.  So far, we haven’t been able to give computers emotion.  Maybe, eventually it will.  But it’s a long way off.  Until then, I’ll keep writing till a computer can do it for me. 

To me, it’s not about technology.  It is about putting the butt in the chair.
