Cruel World

I feel deep sorrow today as I feel I have no other option but to write about the tragedy that occurred in Umpqua, Oregon yesterday afternoon. As of now the final count is left at 9 lives taken including the coward gunman himself. 9 others were injured from the ordeal.

Why do things like this occur?

What kind of person does it take and what state of mind do they have to be in to commit such a horrific crime?

This is something that I will never understand. I’m sure there will be evidence uncovered in the coward’s house about why he did this and how/when he started planning for this day. How do we avoid such tragedies in our free world? We as citizens of the U.S.A have the power to do whatever we wish in life.

We have the right to bear arms and the right to say whatever we want. We can travel wherever we want and get there however we’d like. We can text and drive all we want (except in school zones of course) and make money in any way possible. We as a country have the power and freedom to do pretty much whatever we could possibly want in life, yet we still experience such horrifying crimes like this.

Guys like Chris Mintz, who put his life on the line to help save everyone else, shouldn’t be resting in peace. The ironic differences in these two human figures, Chris and the gunman, is overwhelming the more I think about it.

A guy who puts others before himself vs a guy who wanted to, more likely than not, kill anyone in his path.

Where is our world headed?

I couldn’t think of a better way to start this site off than with an article about the future. The future in America, the future in the world, the future in technology, innovation, engineering, biomechanics, literally everything. Where will we be in 30, 50 or even 100 years? What type of information and technology will be available to us? Who will have the next best idea that seems o so simple when it is mentioned yet no one else can think of it? Who will be the next Steve Jobs or Elon Musk? Who, who who? These are all topics that get my blood flowing every time I begin to think about what the world and its people really are capable of.

Will we be making frequent trips to Mars just because we have access to do so if we’d like? (See video below for the latest breaking news about Mars).

Will the Earth even still be around in 100 years? Will our grandchildren be the one to change the world?

These are all questions that will be answered eventually and I hope this website stays up long enough to do so.
