“So when it’s all so exciting and hopelessly final, the serial killer next door maybe knocking, showing its true self as your father, your best friend, your sister or brother, that no longer significant other that simply couldn’t move on, you’re ready to think about purpose and meaning and when you start letting those ideas roam free, it sounds something like trying to compare and contrast what “I am” compared to everyone else. But you might as well begin and end all comparisons on the violence of our everyday actions and reactions because that’s where the victim’s chance to break free ends. And when that weapon is made murder weapon and the location is made crime-scene, the last thing that’s important is whether or not the victim was a good human being or not.”
