          R.I.P. BRIAN DENEKE
Tomorrow is the 8th year "anniversary" i guess you could call it, of the day Brian Deneke was murdered.
He was only 19 years old, and murdered based on what he LOOKED like.

I think it's wonderful to have memories to hold onto.
It's sad that we have to remember horrid events.
But in a sense, we must remember that our fate is indeed what we make it (and that really, if we were doing anything that happened to be angering anyone or anything matching our idea of 'God'). Things like this happen only because we, as the human beings on this planet, let them happen. Human beings are the ones with FULL control. And although it's really sad that Brian Deneke was murdered for being another silly teenager with silly teenaged ideas, we should have killed the bastards who killed him instead of sat and moped about his death. Because really, all humans have known for years is death.
And protesting it by handing out flyers and posting things like this?
It only ruffles the feathers of humans who think in different ways.
It may sound like I'm being a bitch, or whatever it must be called, but all I'm honestly doing is giving an honest view. This is how it made me feel. Your words do not at all sound sympathetic, or even slightly empathetic. All it sounds like you are trying to do is defend the fact that Brian ... listened to music, and was killed because someone didn't like the same kind of music.

But music doesn't make life. And that thing about the mark of the beast in the bible?
I have it all figured out. The beast are humans. The mark is skin. Either we'll demolish each other with racial differences {all of the racial profiling}, or we'll learn to disregard skin completely. I don't see the latter happening. It's just all very fictional. So, so story-book-like.
And all I can think of as a proper defense is laughing.
Because in the end, it's all so silly.

What did Brian stand for, by the way?

I know you were just being honest, and it's your opinion.
But it hurts me. And I found it to be.. not the right thing to say right now, based on how the whole thing makes me feel. I respect your opinion, but.. I don't like when people put opposing opinoins in my face when i'm not feeling well about the issue.

Hey Tala?

I wasn't meaning to sound like a big wave of hate.
Cos I still love the blue out of you. ♥.
