everyone is thinking the same thing. terrorists, madmen, guns, aurora, batman.

the alarm goes off again. my family exchanges scared glances and the movie keeps playing.

it goes off again, the lights flashing. i'm the first up and soon everyone in the theater follows. it's not that many people, but there is a lot of fear. i'm probably the youngest person there.

i'm the first down the little hallway to the door and i'm terrified. i think i'm the first out, going to be the first killed. everyone is silent.

i open the door slowly, and i see people across the brightly lit hallway also where another movie is playing peeking out. we all walk into the hallway, and see everyone else from the other movies walk out too.

a false alarm. the staff called out it was a false alarm, restarting the movies to when the alarm started. a false alarm. but terrifying nevertheless, because how where we to know? terrifying, an experience i'll remember, the day i thought i would be shot.

you all know about my relationship and distrust of guns, but oh my god yesterday was so scary.

sorry for spamming, but oh my god i keep thinking about it, and i know we all did the wrong thing. we should've taken the emergency exit out of the theater instead of going into it, and that scares me. because we did the wrong thing, as did everyone else in the theater and my god was it fhfhalkjhfaldkjf. terrifying. guns, terrorists. i guess this is what they mean. everyone is under attack, everyone is gaining this TERROR. they're freaking winning. because that was the only thought in everyone's mind.

my god the terror.
oh my god that sounds terrifying. i hope you're okay.

Ok so I know that a lot of you guys have been talking about how you're always feeling kind of on edge because of guns and gun control. And just reading this, this isn't gonna sound that scary, but you have to remember that when you have a dream it literally feels real and just yeah.

So last night I had a dream that ISIS went into New York City and began shooting everyone. Yeah. Just reading it from that sentence, you can't really imagine how i felt when I woke up but I was shaking so bad and I literally had to check my phone to make sure that this didn't actually happen.

In Times Square, dozens of ISIS guys opened fire. In my dream, I was there, and because my brain thought this was real I was immediately in a state of shock. I quickly left the area, and within days Times Square was basically a wasteland. The terrorists were all over Manhattan, randomly going into random places and shooting everyone in the area with machine guns; no place in the city felt safe, because you knew that at any moment they could begin shooting. No one could leave because no one wanted to ride the subways, and no one wanted to go into public areas to get food.

Basically within a week, around half of the people in New York City had been killed, and the rest were hiding in their homes not wanting to go outside.

The biggest comparison I can see this too is the city of Sarajevo. Sarajevo was a city where snipers surrounded the people in the mountains, making it impossible for anyone to leave. Then, they would just begin shooting everyone from rooftops, and those who were left began to starve and it was awful.

But I just can't explain how I felt in the dream. Every day or too, someone around me would begin shooting and I'd watch as everyone around me fell down, and so would make it out at the last second. I started to get paranoid of everyone, worried that at any moment they could begin shooting me.

A while ago, I had a dream that terrorists had broken into my school and were shooting everyone. That dream also left me terrified in the morning because it felt so real, and I had spent the last couple of hours BELIEVING that I was going to die and all my friends were dead.

This seems really dumb but I want to know if anyone else is just really freaked out by everything? Personally I've had second thoughts before going into really public areas. (I think what caused my dream is the fact that my sister and I went to New York City a couple days ago and that was already giving me lots of anxiety.)

it's not dumb at all. I've had dreams before about terrorists, especially ISIS. they're so terrifying and so messed up that it freaks me out just to hear about them on the news, you know? and one time at my school we had a drill, like a code red. no one knew what was happening but we were all thinking that there was a shooter in the school ... I was shaking and crying, one of my worst nightmares is being caught in a school shooting :/ so anyway stuff like that happens to me too, i get freaked out not just in weird code reds but also before going into public places. ((the code red wasn't actually valid, as it turns out. it was actually a reporter with a tripod walking through the parking lot, someone thought it was a rifle and called the cops as he was leaving. but they never communicate that stuff to us during a drill so it was really scary.))

but yeah I understand. I've never had a dream that detailed and vivid though ... thats horrible, sorry you had to go through that :c

haha so my friends were having a sleepover last night and decided to use an ouija board. long story short the "ghost" said she would kill me with "boom" and so just as I was getting ready for bed one of them texts me all this and told me to stay away from anything that could explode. then she got kinda angry when I told her to not tell me next time because I get anxious really easily. so knowing how ouija boards work, I'm quite annoyed at this, since it means that subconsciously they either want me to die in an explosion or they don't care if I do. but maybe I'm just in a bad mood from not getting any sleep.

oops so I was definitely just in a bad mood
but now I was going to have a sleepover with a friend tonight and we had been planning this for over a week and then yesterday she forgot and made plans with another one of her friends so now I have to stay home alone all night. Which is quite possibly my least favorite thing in the world. yay

Feminism to me is an idea of love and equality, which is a Christ-like idea as well! God sees all equally and with love, and that's all that (at least my definition of) feminism is at its core. A lot of people have different opinions on these subjects, and it's good to hear everyone's ideas and opinions and such, but also keep in mind your personal religious beliefs and your relationship with God. It's your own journey and opinions that you have to develop yourself. But to me feminism is a beautiful and worthy cause, and even if I don't agree with every feminist on every issue I do still consider myself a feminist because I keep the core ideals and believe in equality for everyone. I hope you can find your way through this.

thank you so much friend - sorry for the late reply. i feel a whole lots less panicky and worried now.

the next topic that i'm mulling you guys into is abortion. i know, i'm sorry - it's a subject not everyone likes to talk about. but i have to be honest, i don't think there can be a pro-life feminist. feminists fight for women's rights and abortion simply goes along with it. but i am Christian, and i'm very conflicted. i've researched, yes, but it comes up with a vary of articles.
for example, this: http://skepticsannotatedbible.com/sa.../abortion.html
and then this: http://bibleresources.org/abortion/
please help.
