When i was growing up i could be outside til all hours of the night just me and my friends. Schools were a safe place to be, i never wondered if my mom and dad were coming home because i knew they were. Now I would NEVER let my daughter hang outside friends or no friends, I'm scared to death to send her off to school, and I thank God every day I get to stay home with her, so I dont have to worry if someone is going to come to my place of business and just open fire! It is crazy what this world is coming to! I almost feel guilty for wanting to bring children into it! An Army base...really that would be the LAST place i would think someone would open fire! And today a high rise?! I just hate the news its nothing but BAD news! What are your thoughts?
We are seeing the results of a prog. that was put into place years ago. It involved the practice of not requiring children to take responsibility, it was a indoct. of being entitled, it is the practice of participation trophies/ribbions even if a child did nothing to earn it; it is the practice of not giving "0's" as grades but "60"s" so the child wouldn't feel bad; it is the restriction of parents to rear their children without fear of being turned in to CPS, it is the allowing children to think they have rights to challenge authority; it is telling children "good job" when in fact it wasn't. Now we have adults who have to live in an adult world and they don't know how. We are reaping the hell brought on us by a bunch of feel good, hippy type, psychologist who told us to not force our children to learn how to fail, get up, brush off, and try again. It's not their fault. Now with 10.2% unempl. there will be more.

An Army base...really that would be the LAST place i would think someone would open fire! - babymaddy --- Really? Aren't military bases full of imperfect humans that are subjected to all sorts of crap on a daily basis and perhaps some my find it difficult to deal with. Aren't military bases full of men and women who could very well infiltrate them only to gain facts and pull off something like this? Open your eyes - this world is full of people who are capable of doing monstrous things and yes even on an army base.
Good people are found everywhere and so are disturbed and bad people.

Bad things happened a 1,000 years ago. Bad things happen today. Just because it's more publicized doesn't mean it's not, based on percentage, happening at the same rate. So if you want to panic and be fearful and pass that on to your kids, then go ahead. But I'm just going to keep living my life and not worrying. If something bad happens, then I'll deal with it. Plain and simple.
