Five students were shot at Chardon high school in Clevand, Ohio. The sad part of this story is that so many times this has happened and so many times we have over looked why students are reacting this way.
Reactions of this extremity are a result of our media, social media and entertainment media today. Although I cannot say I wish our government would censor our media, I do wish our parents would censor our children.
Children are the future, as corny as it may seem. As parents, if you cannot care enough for your children’s future, you should care enough for the children that will decide your future. Exposure to video games, violent movies and TV shows portrays to youth, whose minds are like sponges, a sense that violence is the answer to problems. As a nation, we need to start more campaigns with parents and children alike against violence.
