I’m not saying this because it’s Halloween.
I’m saying this because last night, a girl from school was stabbed to death by men who didn’t even know her. 49 times. This girl was stabbed forty-freakin’-nine times.
She wasn’t robbed. She wasn’t raped. I’m not saying that a girl getting murdered must involve either of the two but I can’t help but feel like these men simply picked her out and decided to kill her.
I cannot understand it.
I can’t understand how a person, much less a group of men, can just walk up to a girl, look her in the eyes, and put a knife into her.
I know this kind of news isn’t unusual. I don’t know why this one hit me the way it did when there are even worse stories out there. That’s what scares me.
It’s times like this when I find myself losing a little faith in humanity.
