People Are Sick...

Indeed. People are sick. I always knew this but today it was proven. Lets start in order.
Okay so today was a practice drill for code red lock down at my school. We had to get into a corner and be quite. well to other people being quite and respectful is to much of a task. They were just talking and talking. but here's where them being sick comes in. Our teacher, during the code red, started talking about why these are important. 'We're in high school. we all know why we have these things'. i thought to myself. but apperently not. She was telling us about actual times schools have gone into lock downs because people came in and shot students. How people came in with a gun and started and shot everyone they could. then themselves. People laughed. people fucking laughed at this. i cringed. people are sick.
okay. next time my point is proven. Its lunch time and im in the courtyard, which is right outside the cafeteria, Theres big windows so you can see through. All the sudden i hear yelling and people start running towards the windows and doors. I tell you...probably more than 100 students were on the tables looking inside. and who knew how many more were trying to get inside. Their were thousands of students already inside and i saw everyone was on the tables and many more were just running towards what ever was going on. They were cheering for a fight. Now usually I wouldn't get to mad at this. People were stupid, i knew this. And society is fucked up, people like to see fights. The fight was broken up, i guessed. Because everyone was walking back and went back to eating. Okay, good. But the same thing that happened earlier happened six more times. The 6th time was the worse. Once again, the whole school ran towards the windows and doors. The whole school was yelling from the inside. Where this was happening. Again? But then things got serious when i heard a loud crash. I snapped my head up but couldnt see anything. to many people. and i was trying to keep my distance. More people came from behind me, so many i got pushed to the ground. (My knees were bloody from it. Thats how hard.) And when i looked up again i saw a glimpse of blood. What the fuck? Everyone was screaming and it was over bearing. Not in fear though, excitement. People were actually laughing. I just sat there on my knees as cops and news crews came through. The people in the fight are now in jail. Their faces were covered in blood. And the loud crash? The VP had tried to break up the 6th fight. The student got mad at dr.miller, and pummeled his face into a bullet proof window and shattered it. A BULLET PROOF window. And used his head to break it. Dr.Miller is in the hospital now, they havn't told us exactly whats wrong with him yet. But we do know his skull is cracked.
All through they day people were like "WHOA THAT WAS SO SICK!" and laughing. everyone was saying. "DUUUDEE THAT WAS SOOOO FUNNY! DID YOU SEE HIM? HAHAHAHA OH MAN DR.MILLER WAS SOAKED IN BLOOD! HAHAHA SOOOO FUNNY!" Pretty much everyone saying this. I feel so sick to my stomach. How could people think this was funny? It was awful. So like i said before. Today I realized people are sick. But wait, theres more.
Last period I we took a moment of silence for 9/11. The guy across from me said after. "I dont even care about that." I shot my head up at him in shock. then he said "what? it wasn't me, it wasnt my family. so why should i care?" I couldn't say anything. I just looked at him in disgust. then he really did it. " It would have been better of the buildings blew up right when the plains hit. That would have been fucking awesome! and so much more worth it. Oh come on helen its not like it just happened. it was like 11 years ago. Lighten up. It doesn't matter. get over it." I just stood up and walked into the bathroom and sat there till i was able to come out and face people again.
So i say, once more. People are sick.
