    I live in Europe. As a kid I was interested to see the Grand Canyon. Mount Rushmore. Stuff like that. For this I would need to go to America.

    Today I am afraid, that once I get to America, I will not make it back alive.

    We went to do grocery shopping the very next day. I avoided Walmart and all those big places. Still I was making backup plans in my head about what to do, what to grab for self protection and where to run …. just in case…
    The definition of an American dream has washed away in this fearful environment where I can’t even do basic grocery shopping!
    I didn’t feel safe for few days and avoided all public places.

    YouTuber Colleen ballanger was there and posted a video about her experience. I’m glad you both talked about the effect that it was on everyone not just the people who were directly effected not only by this incident but other incidents as well.

    I bet they’ll ban different types of exhaust pipes before banning guns

    This is fucking ridiculous!!! Something similar happened where I live last night and I just got on the floor out of awareness of the fact that it’s so normal for people to just be walking around shooting random innocent strangers. Even long after the noise stopped I stayed on the floor because I really didn’t know what to do next. This shouldn’t be a problem! Watching this made me cry because I realized even though I haven’t been in any of the areas that these tragedies have taken place, I am suffering from PTSD just knowing this is a possibility.

    So what your saying is white people are finally feeling the fear black people have had for centuries???‍♂️ This fear is called karma. This country planted seeds of hate and now have to deal with the hateful vegetation.?

    If everyone had a gun when that motorcycle was backfiring the “good guys” would have opened fire on other “good guys” pulling out their weapons thinking they are the killer.

    More countries should issue the warning like Uruguay did. It’s funny and true.

    PTSD ? NO, when the Senate does nothing, trump will do nothing, and the public will move on. WE WILL JUST GET NUMB TO IT ALL

    I am motivated to write a will now in my late 20s, not so much because I have a property or because of my child which should be enough.
    I’m doing it because of this terror thing and it’s sad reasoning but ust true. Even insurance can be affected by terrorism, different premiums, its a business yes, but its also necessary.

    This is not PTSD for all of America. It’s called fear. Ignorance is often associate with fear and this a perfect example. Timothy McVeigh killed 168 people and wounded over 680 others without a firearm. Actual victims of rape, abuse, war, and such are the real ones going through PTSD. Not because you watched the news headlines.

    I’ve wondered for 2 years how long it would take for someone to start talking about nationwide PTSD. Thank you for talking about it.
