Between the death of American legend Muhammad Ali and the worst mass shooting is U.S. history (which is really saying a lot) it has been quite the negative last week or so.
As far as the Orlando massacre I really hate to say it but stuff like this doesn't really phase me anymore. The most surpising thing to me was that it had been quite a while since we'd had shootings on such as massive scale and that there had never been a higher death toll than 50 people! I was too young to fully understand Columbine when it first happened but Virginia Tech was pretty shocking to me personally as I was in High School and the the trend had yet to really get going. The Colorado Theater and Newtown shootings were a bit intense as well cause the former could have very well been me and latter hit close to home (I'm from Connecticut and it was a major deal for our whole State). I'm honestly just waiting for the next mass shooting to occur at a beach or sports stadium, since those are two of the few types of places where this kind of thing hasn't happed yet. That's really freaking sad, isn't it?
My heart goes out to the families of the victims and I hope that all those mudered will find peace in whatever afterlife there may or may not be.
Now for the passing of the Muhammad Ali. I know it's a little late for the this but I still feel like its worth bringing up. We ALL knew who he was and that he "flew like a butterfly" and "stung like bee." I never followed Boxing at all and I knew that.
But there are others who can summarise his life and legacy far better than I can.
