Please Stop!

I was going through some old photographs recently and came across a contact print of a roll of 35mm film of images I shot while watching the evening news some 20 years ago or so, I remember doing it  for an assignment for one of the many art classes I took in college.  I don't remember the class or the exact nature of the assignment, but I do remember why I did it, and considering the recent headlines of the senseless shooting at a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado, I thought I'd post that assignment here.


So please, let's find more constructive ways to express our opinions or to act out our fantasies or whatever the case maybe, there are ways to so that doesn't involve killing, beating and torturing others. There are some seven billion plus human beings that live on this "third rock from the sun", and there is absolutely no reason why we can't do so with relative peace and harmony.  I am not seeking out some utopian society, all I am asking is for people to think about the consequences of their actions and be more considerate of others; I don't think it is too much to ask or difficult to do.
