    What is wrong with this world that...

    kids resort to killing their grandparents, others in their school and themselves?

    I just don't get it. What the HELL is wrong with this world where kids don't feel, where they can just, "grinning and waving" as the story says, gun down friends or aquaintences in cold blood?

    I know I'll probably be opening a can of worms, but I think that people really need to seriously look at the way this society glorifies violence, revenge, greed, money, and all the things that can turn wonderful kids into violent killers! I for one am part of the generation (the Baby Boomers) that really saw making money and having material things as a status symbol, as a way to tell the world "I have arrived - I'm important!", and I've seen the error of my ways. I am the same way - I love material things, I want money just like the next guy, but I see a LOT of bad in this world, and it's us older folks who need to stop this tide of destruction and take a real, hard look at how we look to our kids, and the simple fact that what we do says MUCH more to them than what we say. I am so sick of the way our society is MORE MORE MORE!!!!! BUY, BUY, BUY!!!!! Does anyone out there agree with me?

    Thanks for listening!

    It's tough.

    Sitting in a classroom all day, I see what happens. I watched "Bowling for Columbine" the other day, and while I don't agree with Michael Moore much, some of what was in there was pretty much right on.

    The frightening thing is, as a elementary school teacher, we can pick em out. We can see all the warning signs, not just from the kid, but from how other kids treat them.

    I'm with ya, Shock.
    Have you ever seen a race of turtles, and they all go the wrong way instead of towards the finish line?

    I agree somewhat with your post. My problem is that just because you think your life is worthless and your depressed doesn't give you the right to go out and shoot innocent people whom may be content in their lives.

    Sadly, they don't see it that way. They are too consumed within themselves.

    It is a very sad thing to see something like this happen where I grew up it was about 90 some miles from there we heard all the stories from there about what some of the people on the "Rez" have done. I dont want to play the race card but if you are a non Native american becareful when you go through there. For years that place has wanted to be an independent state. It is a poverty stricken area. Every time I have had to go through there I was praying the vehicle would make it through there.
