In this situation, would you choose your husband or your child?
So, my brother has court tomorrow. He has court for 3rd degree assault. He pointed a gun at my daddy and threatened to kill him.
My mom is dumb enough to try to bring him back home. This isn’t the first time he’s done something like this, he’s always been physically abusive to me and my parents. One time he hit my dad in the head with a baseball bat, he’s busted my mom’s lip open, he’s stood over my parent’s bed at night threatening to kill them, he threatens to burn the house down, he’s hit me many times. Please keep in mind, I’m a 15 year old girl. I have scars from cutting myself because of him. Also, whenever he pointed the gun at my dad, my dad had just broke his hip at work, so he was conpletely defensless.
He is a week from turning 17, so the state is trying him as an adult. My mom is sooooo scared her sweet little boy will go to jail. The way I see it, if you‘re man enough to point a gun at your 70 year old handicapped father, you should be man enough to go to jail and get your @$$ kicked a few times. My mom said she’s going to tell the judge he didn’t do it.
He’s in foster care right now, if he comes home I’m scared for mine and my parents’ life. My mom is stupid enough to let him come home, my dad is going to say he doesn’t want him home if he’s gonna keep acting that way, I don’t know if I can testify because of my age. I know she loves him, he’s her son, I just can’t believe she’d pu herself and her whole family in danger because of him. He could have easily pulled the trigger and killed my daddy that day, I will never, ever forgive him for that!
What would YOU do if you were in my mom’s shoes?
I grew up with the same issue, except it was my dad being violent towards my grandma. My grandpa would call the cops and he’d go to jail, but she’d bring him right back in to our home for history to continue to repeat itself. 20 years later and she still bails him out of his problems. Now,my grandpa isn’t here to stop her. If you’re mom doesn’t let your brother take resposability for his actions he’s headed for a life of trouble. She’s not helping him, she’s destroying him! You can testify, it’s your home too. If your mom continues to let these types of things happen you could eventually be put in foster care. Maybe if theres a relative you can stay with, you could let your mom know how you feel and that you can’t be apart of this. What’s going to happen if next time he kills your father? There’s no saving her sweet little boy from that.
What do you think of…?
This poem I wrote?
It’s called ‘Should I pull the trigger?’
Should I pull the trigger?
Or do it with a knife?
‘cause if I’m quite honest,
It was a wretched life.
But to torture or to kill,
That is the only question.
For I do not know my will.
But, only one suggestion.
A Sharp blade covers my hand,
A trigger in the other.
But of which path should I choose?
For one I once called brother.
If only I could have changed it,
Then he wouldn’t die from my blade.
And he wouldn’t die from my trigger,
For only then, would he be saved.
Should I pull the trigger?
Or do it with a knife?
‘Cause once only shall I,
End this once wretched life.
And before you ask, no i’m not an emo, I just wanted to try out a different genre, so I chose hatred.
What do you think? Good? Bad? Are there any places I should expand on?
Oh yes, these would be killer lyrics. Better than some of the trite shit my ears are occasionally assaulted with. Anything by Hinder, for example. : )
You’re an excellent writer, though. Who cares if anyone thinks you’re emo? Fuck them. Good luck.
If you were facing a criminal with a knife in your face, would you rather…?
use a product of technology and science, like a pistol, to protect yourself, or clutch the holy bible and invoke your faith.
I’ll promise you this much… if pulling the trigger could save your life, and you choose to stand there and pray, you will die.
THIS is the REAL real dividing line between what people CLAIM they believe, and what they really believe. Despite what many think, religious faith in our society is a luxury, and one that most people abandon at the moment of truth.
When all else fails, people will cry to god, but by that time they are in a pure survival instinct mode, and will say anything. When given the possibility of being rescued by the hands of technology, people inevitably ask to be saved by technology.
If you ever get to witness the hypocrisy of “faith” you will understand what I mean.
Ninja (which you are clearly NOT),
So, using your line of logic, those christians who get sent off to war are hypocrites if they use anything but the Bible to defeat their enemy?
Use of a weapon by someone with the ‘luxury’ of religious faith would be wrong, simply due to their faith?
Let’s take this a bit farther…by using your thinking, christians who are fatally injured that are saved by life saving technology must be a hypocrite simply because they were not saved by their faith alone?
Your argument is full of holes…which leads me to believe that you are either incredibly young or naieve…most likely both.
This is a very thinly veiled anti-christian rant.
