Every time I watch the news at 11, they kick it off with reports on the latest shooting, or something tragic like that. All these reports do is turn parents into helicopter parents, and I'm not going to let it affect me, because those reports were around when I was a kid in the 1980's. I walked around town all the time, and turned out fine. Why? I knew safety rules. But back in my times these reports were a lot less frequent and they had good reports, too, even though it's not really anymore dangerous than back in my childhood. I really think the media is trying to scare us. I want to see happy reports again.
