I watched a movie last night about a pastor who killed his son's next door Neighbor because he was gay. It was heart wrenching. I know things like this happen out there but it seems so barbaric. I feel like we are back in the days of segregation of people of color. How dare anyone take anyone's life away from their mother, partner, sister, brother...anyone! Sorry this is alittle emotional. I had to get that off my chest.

Some of the time I do get carried away after watching a heartbreaking movie. Yeah I do wonder why people nowadays are very easy to kill others. Life is no longer a precious thing to some people. They can easily take away people's life just like that. It's like as easy as drinking water to them, and it makes me scared. I live alone at home when my husband goes to work. So sometimes I do feel scared when I heard so many crimes nowadays happened in their very own home. I wonder how can a person enter another person's house and do murder there? Home is no longer a safe place for living. I personally hope that one day there will be a device to detect any person which carries the intention of murder or any physical harm. Lol. Though this sounds weird, but who knows with modern technology and scientific research, scientists will come up with something in the future? I hope the criminals will be punished according to what they have done and at that time no person is going to judged unfairly. Thanks for giving me some space here. Have a nice day, tep91005!

No need to be sorry. Its very understandable that it would be upsetting to you. I dont understand why people have to be so prejudice. Everyone has a right to live any lifestyle that they so choose. Was the movie based on a true story? I really wish things would change. It seems like they keep getting worse and worse.
