Weapons Aren't The Problem
The U.S is mourning yet another mass shooting, this time at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas. I’m going to spare you the statistics and graph charts; you can look those up on your favorite news outlet. I’m hoping some of you are getting to know my writing style by now, so you know this is another engagement piece.
They say lions needn’t concern themselves with the opinions of sheep. But we can’t always compare human standards to the rules of the animal kingdom. Therefore, I’m here to share why as kings of your own jungle, you definitely should keep an eye out for irrational and unpredictable men.
Ask, And You Shall Know
Words are sharp; therefore, I choose to rest the blades when I can. It has become increasingly difficult to express oneself without triggering the unleashed demons that people battle within them. This is a recurring theme; both on and offline. Having open discussions, making comments, jokes, or even just looking at someone for a little too long is almost guaranteed to shine a bad light on people who probably don't mean any actual harm.

Don't Mess With People Who Handle Your Food
Do you know what I can’t stand? Waking up at 7 in the morning craving a delicious breakfast, only to find out I’m missing some critical ingredients like eggs or hot sauce. Now I have to get dressed, hop in my car, blast some heavy metal, and do all of this while being half-awake and fully hangry.
Perhaps, 'Peace' Is The Wrong Word
You can't have one without another. To know light, you must know darkness. To feel love, tenderness, and caring, you have to experience hate, suffering, and lack in some form. For every single thing or person on this earth, somewhere out there exists a perfect unequal.
Sure, You Don't Have To Explain Yourself... Until You Do.
Do you ever find yourself in a situation where you feel like you have to justify your actions? Or maybe someone has misinterpreted something you said and you want to clear the air, but don't know how? We all know that some people are just going to form opinions about you no matter what you do or say.
