People do horrible, heinous things every day. Right now someomeone somewhere is doing some incredibly cruel and sadistic thing to another human being. We see it on the news all o the time, and most of us shrug, say “Wow, thats awful!” and move on.
But this story bugged me. Maybe because I have really just heard about it, and because CNN showed a picture of the victim. He looked like a normal everyday kid. They said on the news that he has been burnt on 65% of his body!
What were these other kids thinking? How could they possibly concieve of doing something like that over what? A disagreement? A video game? When I was 15 I had other kids that I absolutely hated, but I never thought “I’ll set his ass on fire! That’ll teach 'im to mess with me!”.
I’m depressed now. Are kids just crazier nowadays or has it always been like that and I just didn’t notice?
