The Universe. Some scratches of Beryllium. Diving. The Navel of the Galaxies. Maybe god. Maybe the void. Maybe you. Maybe it's just cryptical

Raining Blood

Element: Ceres (Previously an Asteroid, now a Dwarf-Planet)
Mood: Shocked
Song: 9 Crimes * Damien Rice

"Is that alright with you?
Give my gun away when it's loaded
That alright with you?
If you don't shoot it how am I supposed to hold it"

9 Crimes by Damien Rice

32 were killed yesterday in Virginia Tech in the deadliest rampage in the history of the US.

That's the major news. Behind the news come the investigations, the motives of the killer (who committed suicide right after the bloodbath), and the questions.
The issue of weapons to be made available for everyone, anywhere, anytime at the US is the true current debate. This is not the first carnage, as it is becoming almost routine-like to have those in US schools and universities.

Though it surely is the deadliest. And 32 dead is a lot. If one would think that university (save the USA) is the safest place for teens and children, he has to rethink about his approach.

I spent the whole evening following this news story developing. And even if it's not a regional issue, I felt it was intriguing enough that a young man like that would hold a couple of guns and shoot whoever is on his way.

I imagined an irksome asteroid hit some 32 planets before fragmenting and collapsing into space.

An asteroid (in Greek: star-like) is a typical planet, rotating around the sun too, though it is smaller in shape. This is why they called it sometimes planetoid (in Greek: planet-like).
Most of these objects lie in the 'Asteroids Belt' located between Mars and Jupiter

Ceres was the first to be discovered. It is also the largest known asteroid, but it was recently demoted (or is it promoted) into a dwarf-planet. Although the most massive element in the Asteroid Belt, it is the smallest dwarf planet. A dwarf-planet is a newly-introduced term to present the biggest asteroids, which, in size, are the smallest planets.

In the Greek mythology, Ceres is the goddess of harvest, and of motherly love.
And one can only pray for the mothers who lost their children and loved ones during yesterday's rampage …
