There was a time, during a football game, that surprised me greatly. It involved two of our own people, older than us, on the bleachers. We were sitting watching the game, before suddenly we heard a commotion behind us and quite a few gasps. I turned and looked and the two people were slugging it out. Well, more like one person hitting while the other looked frightened but surprised at being attacked. It was such a sudden thing, and it was over soon. But it still surprised me and made me think "woah that just happened."
Hmmmm, that's crazy. I've never witnessed a fight. I feel bad for the one getting attacked.
Ya that would be crazy and surprising
Brooke oh my goodness I totally remember that! I think we were all sitting together on the bleachers..
I was in middle school and the Boston Marathon had been bombed. It made me angry because I don't understand how people can be so cruel and have no feeling or emotion about what they are doing. They are taking innocent people's lives and they don't even care about that
I think they have emotions about it they just ignore all of them but it also makes me mad too.
I agree I don't really understand how someone could do something like that just because they don't have the same beliefs.
This is a very good example. I can't even imagine finishing one of the hardest races and then boom I was dead.
I'm with you that people can be cruel enough to take someone's life
I saw a pit bull get beat by a kid my age one time. The kid said his dog peed in his room. I felt that the kid should maybe punish the dog but not torture. I also felt angry, disgusted, and sad. I beat that kid on the spot and took his dog home with me. We named it Sadie and it lived for most of my life. And he never peed in my room.
That's so sweet Devon! I'm glad you took that sad event and made the dog have a better life!
That's good he didn't pee in your room. It's great you took him home.
And then people wonder why the dog bites them... -_-
Oh my gosh! Thats sssoo sad! I love pit bulls!
Some violent events pimp me up like boxing or MMA. Others events like natural disasters and shootings make me uncomfortable and sad. It also makes me glad that it didn't happen to me.
It definitely makes us more thankful for what we have.
I agree with the MMA and boxing, my mom taught me to box when I was 7. And I think that it is a good sport.
The big fight at the movies pump me up. Mass shootings also make me sad and scared.
I can after that MMA fights pimp me up too
One time when we were staying in a hotel in Boise, there were two black guys dressed all gangster-like, fighting right below our window. They were yelling cuss words, getting up in each other's faces, and it looked like they were about to start throwing punches. One of them claimed that the other had stolen his car. It was kinda entertaining, but we were hoping I wouldn't turn into a fist fight.
I agree that would be very entertaining 😂😂
I agree that it would be entertaining but I don't think that it would end very fun to watch it erupt into more than that
😂😂👍🏽🙈 this is hilarious!
That sounds intense. Good thing they didn't pull out guns on each other 😅
When I see events like bombings in places and everyone's homes are destroyed, there's people being rescued from the rubble, and people being carried off on stretchers that have lost limbs it makes me feel really sad. I can't even imagine what they would be going through.
It's very disturbing...
I agree, i couldn't imagine what that is like
Whenever I see some sort of unpleasant event it just makes me so sad for the victims and also for the person behind whatever happened. I feel for the victims. It makes me almost scared of what the world has come to. Also, it makes me feel bad for the person behind it because they must be really missing something to commit a crime.
I agree. The person behind it hasn't had a chance to see what makes life good so they choose to do bad things
I like how you said that the person behind the crime must've been through something to make them do the bad thing.
I think the one that sticks out to me the most is the sandy hook school shooting. It made me feel sad for both the shooter and the kids. Because it made me wonder how sad to have to be to go and shoot a whole bunch of kids and then just end up shooting yourself. Also sad for the kids because they didn't do anything wrong and now there family's have to live with a lose that will never go away.
I agree, that was really sad and disturbing that someone would do that.
I agree that this a true tragedy for all of the people involved.
I saw a fight between two people on CNN. He was defending Trump and the person defending Clinton didn't really do anything. The guy just freaked out and wouldn't let the other person talk. He jumped to conclusions. It made me feel angry that since he wouldn't let him talk just because he had different ideas.
People shouldn't jump to conclusion like that. Other people deserve a voice even if their opinion is different.
I agree that people should definitely let others tell their side of the story instead of jumping to conclusions
I can witness some violent events like a school fight and kinda pumps me up but I do feel bad for the other people. I could also witness a diffferent type of violent or uncomfortable event that will make sad and uncomfortable.
I've never seen a school fight but in hockey when players fight it pumps me up
It also makes me angry when someone can't defend himself or the fight is a butt kicking for one of them.
One thing I've heard on the new would be Boston Marathon bombing that happened in 2013. It was terrible to hear about and then a few months later one of my grandmas friends came up and visited us. She told us her experience and how everything had happened. I felt terrible that these people had trained so hard and some of them weren't able to finish. I would be so discouraged if that had happened to me
Yeah, I remember watching that on the news, it was terrible.
I remember that the year after your mom went to the Boston Marathon. It had to have been incredibly terrifying for her to go because of the bombing the year before.
Ya it was but I was hoping that since it had happened before she ran it so it might not happen again
I read a book when I was in seventh grade called I am Malala. It was about a girl named Malala yousafsfia and her life growing up in Pakistan. Her family was for women's rights and education. Her and her father spoke up against the Taliban and received several death threats. She witnessed several friends and some family members being killed by the Taliban. They lived in constant fear. One day she was riding a bus and a man came in and shot several girls and nailed her in the head. She survived and is now a education and women's rights activist. It was really hard for me to read that book, a lot of the time I didn't even want to read it because there was some terrible stuff in it.
I can remember when the Sandy Hook School shooting took place. I was both disgusted and shocked at how cruel and inconsiderate people can be. It makes me sick inside knowing that people actually have the heart to do such things and to kill innocent people. It really made me realize that people who are like that probably undergo a lot of stress, but even still, how can you shoot a bunch of people and then end up shooting yourself, it just doesn't make sense. I would not want to be the parents of any of those kids that were killed. They were forced to live the rest of their lives without their children and their families were torn to pieces, all because of one person.
One unpleasant event I experienced this weekend was when I was in the car with my mom and we were driving home from out of town. I had driven most of the way but in Leadore my mom and I switch and then a few minutes later she hit an elk. It was really scary and zi had little pieces of glass all over me and then a few minutes later she hit a deer.
Whenever I witness an unpleasant or violent event it always makes me sad at first for the people it harmed or affected. But it also makes me scared a little, because a lot of the stuff that happens could happen to me, and it scares me!! I remember one time I was aiding at the Pioneer school and Johnny got stabbed it the eye and I remember feeling sick to my stomach and super bad for him.
Yeah it's amazing how something you do everyday could potentially kill yoh or severely harm you.
Recently, I saw one of the ISIS executions. There was one man in a cage in an orange suit like what prisoners wear and then there was an entire line of ISIS combatants. The man the cage was burned alive. The video lasted until he was completely burned to a crisp. This video made me feel disgusted and blessed to be living in a safe place.
Holy cow Jesse! That is so sad! It does make you grateful for our country
That is really sad! I could never watch someone be burnt to death.
Whenever I hear about a school shooting or any shooting at all I wonder what drives people to the point that they want and need to kill orher people. How someone could get so upset with their lives they forever harm others.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
