  1. Completely numbed out over these deaths.
    Does it desensitize me? Absolutely not.
    It makes me want to fight even harder on behalf of these voiceless victims.
    It’s horrific reading these accounts that depict what was going on at the scene.
    They are a reflection of the massive suffering of sentient beings for commercial greed.
    Anybody who supports or participates in this vile business needs their head examined and their heart replaced.
