What can we learn from the Newtown tragedy?
Now that the events at Newtown, Conn., are beyond the hysterical and emotionally charged stage, many questions need answering.
1. Why was the rifle so angry? 2. What caused the rifle to go to that school and murder so many innocent children and adult staff. 3. Was the rifle bullied in school? Did the rifle play violent video games for hours at time day after day?
Sound ridicules, of course it is. So is the anti-gun crowd wanting to ban guns as though the gun did it! People kill people, not guns. Focus on Adam Lanza, that is where the problem lies. What social and cultural influences was he exposed to, that created his state of mind. His action was pure evil. How did he learn to be like this?
We will solve nothing, nor prevent future Adam Lanzas, if we do not address what is being bombarded into the brains of our children. The senseless and graphic violence in movies, TV shows, video games, comic books and the internet are the world our children are growing up in. Many of these disturbed young men, do not have a Father around to teach them how a man should live his life, that manners matter, that a relationship with God matters, and that treating women, as a gentleman, with respect, matters.
Adam Lanza was a victim of our culture. If anything good can come of this tragedy, it is this: Wake up America and change those things in our culture that have been destroying families. Stop idolizing those in our media and our culture that grow rich from poisoning the minds of our children, and promoting the destruction of the American Family. Promote those who help to reinforce and strengthen the family. This is what caused Newtown to happen, not a gun that can’t pull the trigger. This is an “All American Issue” that must be addressed!
