I’ve always been enamored with Batman’s aversion to firearms. If Joe Chill had a knife, Bruce probably would’ve still had at least one parent.

I know it’s fiction, but it’s a rich and storied mythos that’s lasted nearly a century, and the genesis of that myth is a gun taking away life. 

I’m shit at saying poignant things about days like today, so I usually just don’t. 

Beyond just access to guns, we, as a people, should seek to create a world where the kind of people who would need to seek out guns for this kind of slaughter get help and get it as early as possible. 

I don’t know. I’ve always liked Batman so much because I admire his morality and his steadfast dedication to an ideal; that no one should have their lives taken away by cowardice, selfishness, malice or reckless abandon. 

It’s our world. Awful things happen, and will continue to happen, but I hope we all learn from them, and seek to live our lives more fruitfully and more positively, beyond reactionary statuses on social media.
