Students become society’s products

Dear Uncle Sam,

I heard you are wondering why your school students are shooting and killing each other.

The old adage still holds true, “There is no one so blind as he who will not even try to see.”

Stand back and take a good look at yourself. You have made laws that make it illegal to put “Thou Shalt Not Kill” on the school property. What do you expect?

The students are the product of the society they grew up in. If you do not teach them not to kill, why do you expect them not to?

Television glorifies killing daily, and the internet is so full of it. Supposedly killing daily, and the Internet is like the real thing.

And then you expect them not to do so.

It is a sorry state to be in, but that is where you are today. The question now is: Will we correct the problem, or will we continue down the wrong road?
