Talking about terrorism

Terrorism is a violent strategy used by various people and groups to achieve a certain goal.

 

It sucks and it can be heaps scary, even just to hear about it in the news.

 

This is a thread to talk about it a little bit and to support each other.

 

If you're really stressed out about it right now though or thinking about it is making you feel really overwhelmed, start by having a one on one chat over here with Lifeline or KHL. But come back and talk to us too if you'd like to Smiley Happy

 

 

Re: Talking about terrorism

I've been thinking about this a lot recently Smiley Sad

Re: Talking about terrorism

It's pretty scary, and also because there's lots of news i guess it's hard to put it aside for a little while so i reckon you're not alone in that Smiley Sad

 

How're you feeling about it all @roseisnotaplant?

Re: Talking about terrorism

It's just really sad, and it really gets to me that people use stuff like this as an opportunity to spread more hate.

Re: Talking about terrorism

Great thread @Ben-RO and yes @roseisnotaplant it can really feel heavy on the heart. How are you feeling at the moment around the recent news?

 

I think the media has a big part to play in the terrorism campaign, a lot of these groups kill large numbers of people in their own country as well on the daily, I feel this is something people tend to forget about, it's certainly a tricky one to get our heads around. Did everyone watch the Manchester concert Ariana and friends put on? It was pretty lovely. Heart

Re: Talking about terrorism

The concert was amazing! It actually made me tear up a bit. It's amazing how when it really comes down to it, we are united. <3

Re: Talking about terrorism

yesssss @Karinaskii Coldplay's rendition of Oasis    Heart Heart Heart

Re: Talking about terrorism

Oh my goshhh! So good! And then when Ariana sung "Over the Rainbow". I had goosebumps!

Re: Talking about terrorism

Yeah, although I didn't watch all of the benefit concert, it was just such a beautiful gesture, and a reminder that even in the face of all this horrible stuff, we can be united for a common, positive, goal.

 

I think it's so important that we're opening up the discussion around this issue. I was just watching The Project, and in Melbourne they're putting up concrete blocks in an attempt to deter people from using vehicles in an attack, as happened in Paris/London. It's just so sad to think that it's come to that. But at the same time, I'm glad the city is taking some sort of non-combative action....
