It’s a dog-eat-dog world. Violence is everywhere.
We don’t think about it a lot though.. This is very
strange, because every time you turn on the news
or open up a paper you will be engulfed by violence
and death. We are taken aback and horrified, but it
does not necessarilly influence our lives in a big way.
Can you recall any details of the latest shootings in
the Middle east or Africa? I sure can’t.. But I bet
you can remember the Ezechiel 25:17 scene
from Pulp Fiction. I started to think about this
when the shooting happened in Alphen a/d Rijn.
I wanted to play devil’s advocate. explore the idea of
a society desensitized to gun violence.
