The Sadness Of Tragedies In The World (R.I.P Christina Grimmie 1994-2016)


When I woke up this morning, I of course went on my phone to check texts and e-mails,Facebook and Twitter.  The first thing that I saw on Facebook and sadly overflowed my Facebook was that Christina Grimmie was shot in Orlando, Florida while she was signing autographs for her fans. She was only 22 years old and had her whole life ahead of her.  She was a very talented young lady. 
It also said that her brother tackled the shooter. unfortunately, the shooter then shot himself so we will probably never get an answer as to why he shot and murdered her. Her brother should definitely be considered a hero.If he wasn't there, the shooter could have shot and murdered a lot more people.

Here is what I'm curious about tho, where were the security guards and metal detectors?  The security guards could have noticed that something was wrong and removed him before he had the opportunity to shoot and murder Christina. Also, at all of the concerts I've been to there has always been metal detectors to make sure nobody brought weapons into the venue. Where were the metal detectors at that concert?

In all serious, nobody knows when their last day on this world will be so we should be respectful to everyone we meet and treat them like we would like to be treated.  Everyone has bad days;that's a part of life; but a smile goes a long way or just simply a "Hello, how are you today?" People will take that and then spread it to more people they encountered throughout their day. Another idea, is when you see someone having a bad day on Facebook, write a post on their wall(or text them) and them them why you love having them in your life. You could even write posts on your friends' or family members' walls  just whenever you feel like it and tell them why you love them.
