Halloween is one of the most fun times of the year. One of the only seasons when lighthearted mischief and pranks are socially acceptable, October brings lots of joy with it. Unfortunately, the changing of the seasons has been extremely tumultuous thus far in 2016, and things are only getting more and more horrific.
Whether it be the frightening clowns that have apparently taken over the country or the lackluster presidential debate that has left something to be desired at nearly every available turn, the horrors of Halloween have become far too real this year. Now things are only getting worse as one of the most horrific news story of the year has just broken.
It was recently reported that Kayden Culp, a 10-year-old resident of Kerrville, Texas, who also happens to be special needs, was put on life support after another young boy set him ablaze. Three boys — aged 9, 10, and 11 — have since been taken into custody for the attack, which proves that evil truly knows no age. No matter how young you may be, there can still be true evil inside of you.
Kayden’s aunt, Kelly Mack, told local news publication News4 San Antonio , “The other kids are saying that he was going to be riding his bike like he always is, my nephew Kayden is going to be riding his bike, and they said we’re going to grab him and take him inside and burn him.”
There are no words to describe just how disgusting this story is. Just when you think you have seen the worst in humanity, something like this happens and reminds you that there is still much more evil to be exposed on our planet. There is still another plain that can be reached.
If there’s anything this story will remind us of — aside from the fact that monsters do exist and walk among us — it’s that it’s important to be prepared both physically and mentally for the absolute worst. No matter how hard you try, it’s almost impossible to be ready for news such as this, but the Regressive Left’s attempts at hiding the truth about horrific events only makes the reality so much harder to come to terms with.
Let’s hope that for the rest of the year, the Halloween haunts are significantly more fictitious and a lot less real. We can all use a little more fun and a little less heartbreak this year. If this is a sign of things to come, god only knows how badly we’ll need some positivity in our lives.
