What would happen next?

From my last post:

As a writer, I'm thinking:

What if this is the beginning of the Apocalypse? What would happen next? Would anyone know?

One thing might be random acts of violence, like we just witnessed here in Alabama.

Best descriptive writing for a news story I've read here:

Killer's march took 200 bullets, 1 hour, 11 lives

Sometimes, folks, it just takes ONE TINY LITTLE THING to set off such rage; and maybe, just maybe it's the nasty turn of the economy these days.

Food for thought, indeed.

No one, not even the wealthy, are immune to this kind of violence. Remember, once upon a time, the villagers took up pitchforks and lit torches to attack the king's fortress.

Not much has changed in human nature, even if we've constructed a thin veneer of "civilized behavior."

Any writer worthy of their profession, KNOWS THIS FACT.

You're right...not much has changed in human behavior. I've been thinking about the innocent victims and their families. So tragic, sad. And senseless!
