To the populace... it's all over.
The comments about "Hopefully this will bring comfort..." Shows their ignorance.
No sentence, no punishment, will ever bring comfort or fix a darn thing or help in healing at all.
People out there just don't get, and they never will. To them, they'll go back to work and life and forget it happened.... and since they can do it, why the hell can't we? They got over it, what the hell is our problem?
It's the reason I just will not share my struggles with people who aren't survivors, it's a huge waste of my own energy and in the end leaves me more open to struggles, depression, and triggers. Anything else is like trying to teach a monkey to solve a rubiks cube.
Sure we need to raise awareness so hopefully other kids can be protected, but when it comes to understanding... I don't think it's even possible.
