The whole Ariana Grande scandal was in every way terrible. Matching a lot of other events happening at the moment. And I really respect the way Ariana has treated the whole situation.
I have over the last couple of weeks read tonnes of opinions not only on the whole situation but also on how people react to the whole situation. One of the opinions that truly got to me, was the idea that, yes the whole situation is very tragic, but there are happening things like this every day, and people only care because it’s all over the media. I kinda agree with this, and kinda not. Because yes, this is all over the media, and that is why people care about it. But I feel like if we did more talking about the things that are happening every day, people would probably care about that too.
Most people don’t react like this to these situations because the wanna look good, most people actually do it because they are in fact scared, and perhaps even sad. Because when things like this happen, it is very easy to get scared. I remember the first time I heard of a terror attack I was scared for weeks, barely wanted to leave the house.
So in conclusion: It’s okay to be scared and react they way you do. But perhaps not say stuff like “I can’t believe something like this could happen.” Because it does every single day, and we all need to talk more about that. The first step to fixing a problem is admitting there is a problem.
