Why I am a Pacifist

12:38 PM Posted In Edit This 0 Comments »
I do not understand violence. At all.

I cannot comprehend why anyone would open fire upon anyone else.

I do not see why murder could even exist.

I cannot believe someone would blow up a building with people in it.

Excuses are given:

1. They disagreed with the government
2. They cheated on me.
3. They made fun of me.
4. I needed the money.

None of these are valid and justified reasons for knowingly taking the life of another human being.

Now this is not to say that I do not believe in retribution. If I ever see again the person who raped me, I might very well tear out his throat with my bare hands. I believe in ensuring that heinous acts are never again committed.

I just will never understand why they have to happen in the first place.
