We've had a day to let this sink in. To share our grief and express our sorrow and our anger. Is there any point to continuing this?Originally posted by Leaping Larry Jojo
I really want to talk about something else, but understandably, news and events have pretty much come to a halt, so new things are pretty much out of the question. I'm angry at nothingness. Ever feel that? When you just sit there, and you're angry, but not at anything in particular, just the nothingness? I don't feel angry about yesterday; just sad. Sad about the possibilities of human nature. Or being reminded of them.
I guess it's more like a frustration rather than anger. It's like I'm in limbo today.
As a matter of substance, there is probably nothing to do but share news (which we can get off of the internet if we have to) and argue about what comes next--probably not a constructive topic and one that probably contravenes the TZ injunction against controversial topics.
LLJ didn't suggest this in so many words, but it is worth putting out for discussion:
Should we declare a moratorium on the subject of yesterday's horror, and use this board's other threads and topics as much needed distraction?
With all the grief out there I don't think this is a decision that the mods, even collectively, should wundertake alone. This is a community, and if the community wishes to put this behind it, it is up to that community.
Please say what you think.
