school children and violence

Monday, December 17, 2012

In my online ticker, a news story came across about elementary school children in China being attacked by a knife wielding individual. this was the same day as the shootings in CT. Although none died in china, all were hospitalized. This was the second attack on elementary school children in china recently.

With the reigniting of controversy of the gun policies in the US, not one of the major networks have even mentioned the knife attacks. Even a baseball bat can be a deadly weapon, perhaps keeping children safe should the main point of discussion.

    We forget in our discussions about our "rights" that we have the responsibility to protect those who can not protect themselves.

    I didn't see anything about the attacks in china either. And that's sad. It should have been more than a blip on the news ticker.

    I would agree . . . providing them a safe environment is the #1 priority!
