Molly Malone BS: Help me! Columbine Thread (32) RE: BS: Help me! Colunbine Thread 27 Apr 00


Call me a freak. Call me anything you like. But when tragedy stricks, I WANT to be desensitized. I will take any horrible memory and relive it over and over so that I can get through it on my terms. So the next time I see it unexpectantly I'm not such a basketcase. But it has to be on MY TERMS. Not whenever the TV stations want me to see it.

And I can't imagine what kind of effect this would have on the children involved. How many months of counselling would be ruined by replaying these? I have three small children. I'm not sure I would want them to be watching TV and suddenly see this again.

annap, I understand your point of view, and certainly respect it. But I can't agree with it.
