This is my thoughts on the arizona massacre. I wrote it about a week before I put it online.
Have you heard about the newest, and arguably most popular celebrity ever? You, like the media, probably didn’t see him as being a celebrity, but he did. Let’s start out with the facts. A guy commits a massacre, including by pure coincidence killing a girl who was born on 9-11 and was nine when she died in 2011, once again bringing out the numbers 9-11. Now, either that was planned also, or there was some extremely unholy force bringing these events together. The guy had been against the congress woman for 3 years. Why, unless he was planning another attack to make himself even more famous, would he wait 3 years to kill her. If he was so against her all those years ago, why didn’t he already kill her. Instead, he waited for a moment that would make him even more famous. This guy wanted nothing but the glory and fame of being able to say “ yes, I am the man who committed this massacre that shook the entire nation.” Sure, there’s evidence he was against the congress woman, but there’s nothing in that that would make him want to kill her 3 years later. However, something else was going on at the same place where the lady was. A nine year old girl born on 9-11 was going to be at this same place in the year 2011. If he had just shot a congress woman it may would have gotten him 5 minutes on the national news. If he would have just shot the girl, it may would have gotten 10. Put them together and you get your 15 minutes of fame. Or as the media made it, an all day showing of just how famous you really just became. The fact that he said with a strong voice to the judge that yes, he was the man in question told me that he was satisfied. He wanted glory and the media handed it straight to him. He showed every other wannabe murderer how to kill and be famous. I would like to thank CNN for their all day coverage of this new celebrity. The murderer was sure satisfied by it.
