In my school years we had to follow classes about earthquakes and nuclear bombs. Perhaps it sounds a bit weird writing that but yes we did have often lessons on how to protect ourselves during an earthquake and some rare ones on what to do in the case of a nuclear war. Oddly and with the knowledge we had that time, the measures to protect ourselves during an earthquake weren’t much different from the ones to protect ourselves from radioactivity.

shoot1_400Yet, looking back at those days what remains is the strong feeling of the horror I felt and shared with many other kids probably all around the world. The fact also, that I still talk about it – and I insure you that I do talk about it, much more often than you would expect from a random mind – is a proof on how traumatic the experience was preparing for the end of the world and what you should do about it when the time comes.

Still that’s not the worst. The worst is that today’s kids go to school, and here we are talking about primary schools even daycares, and they have to learn what are they going to do in a case a gunman invades the school and starts shooting. Kids nowadays in USA learn at the age of nine and eleven what to do if a gunman enters the school and starts shooting. The worst? Parents, teachers and the state, the US President himself expect them to know! Wait there is worst.

Think of it, what is worst? Me learning at the age of nine that the best way to save yourself from a nuclear explosion which will also mean a nuclear world war and the end of humanity as we now it, hiding under your desk and cover your head while trying to be as far away from a window or a nine year old learning that in case of a gunman invasion at school they must make as much noise and confusion they can do while the gunman shoots them other kids have the change to run away and save themselves? THIS IS THE HORROR!

This is THE HORROR but this is also THE REALITY the school kids have to live in USA, in the year 2018. This is also the horror of the parents and teachers. But this is limited in USA. While incidents with mass shootings in schools have happened everywhere, including the quiet and arctic Finland. Just seven weeks into 2018, there have been eight shootings at US schools that have resulted in injury or death. Seventeen people have been confirmed dead in the latest shooting in Parkland, Florida, on Valentine’s Day. Less than a month ago, a 15-year-old student opened fire at a high school in Kentucky, leaving two students dead and 18 injured. Other incidents have been grave, but on a smaller scale. In early February, one student in Los Angeles was shot in the head, and another in the arm, when a gun concealed in a fellow student’s backpack went off.

The same time …none, absolutely none has happened anywhere else all around the world. In UL the last one happened in 1996. Twenty years ago and the one in Finland was the one and only one. Why is that? GUN CONTROL!


That it. GUN CONTROL! Why there is no GUN CONTROL this minute in USA? There are no Second Amendment rights; these are bullshit excuses for rednecks with tiny small …organs. What really there is, is CAPITALISM IDIOT, PROFITS!!! Some make money while your kids are murdered. It is simple as that and NRA is their basic salesperson turn terrorist.

Dear Americans, somebody is killing your kids just for profit. And its frontgun is not an enemy from a foreign land or a strange religion with strange colours is one of you and it has a name: is called NRA.

In the meantime please do keep arguing about the …Second Amendment.
Good luck to your kids who go to school to learn …how to avoid bullets.
And please, never forget to vote for your NRA representatives in the Capitol Hill. You got already a president.
