Earlier today I was just sitting at home, ya know just hangin out after a nice little workout. Adam was out & about getting his hairs cut so I was home alone. As I'm just looking at my computer & eating some Cream of Wheat, I start to hear a helicopter outside. Now it sounded quite distant at first so I figured, oh just a helicopter, I hear those allll the time. But then as I kept listening, it started to get louder & louder. Now for those of you who know me, I am pretty much scared of everything haha. So naturally I start to get a little freaked out because it literally sounds like it is right above our apartment. Finally, I decided to be brave & take a quick look outside. Little did I know that there are 3 helicopters just hovering like right over our community. So I hurry back inside, lock the doors & shut the blinds (I told you I am scared of everything haha) & I start to google my neighborhood...
Well ladies & gents, it turns out there was a shooting right around the corner & they are searching for the suspect! I am totally freaking out at this point. Texting & calling Adam frantically just to make sure he's okay. Of course he is getting his hair cut so he isn't answering. Which freaks me out even more cause I'm worried something happened to him!!! Then I start to hear tons of sirens & I really just have no idea what to do at this point.
I mean I'm also a very curious person so I want to go outside again & see what's going on. But since there is a shooter on the loose, I figure my best bet is to stay inside with the doors locked. Moral of the story is...that the world we live in is such a scary place. It makes me so sad that someone just started shooting people around the corner from where I live, probably for no reason. I feel like soo many things like that have been happening lately & it literally just makes me want to cry. I just keep asking myself why?? Is it really necessary to not only ruin someone's life by injuring or killing them but to also ruin your own? I just honestly don't understand.
So today I have made it a goal to try & do something nice for someone I don't know everyday. Even if it is just saying hi or giving them a compliment or really anything that could make them feel good & make their day a little bit better. I just figure we need to make up for all the bad in this world by filling it with even more good! I hope you all will try & do the same (if you don't already)!
