There Time

I know we all seen the video and the photos of the killer and a part of me feels sorry for him and his family but there was help there he didn't seek it but decided to take another route. It makes me sick that he is getting all this media attention I know people want to know what was going on in his head put in all we really will never know other that he was a loose cannon and he went off. Trust me I know there is help I had to seek it myself and I take my meds for it. I never wanted to hurt anyone but myself but there is help if the person seeks it. Again this is not about me and sure and the hell not gonna be about the killer I feel really sad at this but I feel media should give him less time and more time to the victims and there friends and family. So I am gonna start right here on this blog and give them some time we should take the time and read all we can about them. May they never be forgotten!
