Mass shootings (total of 1661 people killed in 2018) is a tragedy and sadly a spectacle for the media. Opioids have taken 72,000 people in 2018, this is a plague.
We have recently witnessed the mass hysteria that comes with mass shootings. It always appears that time goes by, social media flaunts achievements, family drama posts, animal videos and then all of a sudden almost everyone throws their arms up about gun control and the need to avert the next mass shooting. While, silently, many, many and many more are quietly killed through the mass production and greed of big pharma, that hardly and rarely gets quite the air time as does mass shootings.
I hope to not sound insensitive when it comes to mass shootings. As I have stated prior, they are certainly a tragedy and a horrible circumstance in life. However, in my own personal story and life, I have witnessed many more taken by this plague of pills. Plagues are silent in their destruction. Yet, we can see the root of the problem is always greed. You think the people responsible for creating these medications take them, themselves? No way in hell they will. They know what they can do and what they can do is big business.
There are certainly other ways for treatment and healing the human body. People tend to think that just because their is a medical symbol on something that is the only way. It is not the only way. Time has proven that. Pills will certainly be the plague of this generation, because this generation has grown to want the most and quickest way to optimal health and we have been deceived on how to achieve optimal health. "Take 35 of these pills each morning and you will achieve optimal health."
We are loosing are friends and family members in a society under "In money we trust" We don't have "In God we trust" printed on our money for nothing. We've been sold, bought and distributed. It is my opinion that most of these mass shooters were on some sort of opioid trip that led them to the tragic consequence. Unfortunately, it is easier to blame the tool for not working rather than the architect who built it. There are rumors that Steve Jobs did not care for his children to have the technology that he was the architect of. What does that say? The same goes for the architects of these opioids. Do they allow themselves or people they love to take them? I would argue again, no way in hell. So why should we?
Be on guard, always. It is a big pill to swallow when you understand that most people do not have you in their best interest. On a positive note, we can fight this drug of disease and pill oppression by being their for others and letting laughter and love be the best medicine in our relationships. I know I need more of that :)
