The News Scares Me...

I turn on the news last night and the first thing I see is a picture of some pervert. The first thing I think of is he’s not on the news because he’s dead, or that he’s killed someone, he just naturally looks like a pervert, and of course he was arrested for following a 6 year old girl into a school and molesting her in the school’s bathroom. The next thing was that they are still looking for the man who raped a 5 year old girl and left her naked and bleeding on a dirt road somewhere. Then there was the 11th day of a search for a 13 year old girl who was killed and dumped in or near a river by her 18 year old sister’s boyfriend. Following that was a story about an 18 year old boy who was shot and killed with a sawed off shot gun by a 19 year old at a party. And then there was the lady who turned herself in the following day after running over 5 people in the road and killing all 5 of them, she was drinking and now she will be charged with 5 counts of second degree manslaughter, she confessed to have been drinking at the time.
It would be nice to turn on the TV one time and not be hounded by all of the immoral things that happened that day. I watch the news just waiting to see someone that I know or went to school with get arrested for something stupid but most of the time it’s a lot younger generation that is responsible for acting a fool. Mostly teens and kid’s in there 20’s. It seems that they have no fear of God or any type of conscience. It’s amazing that at the same time there are all of those young men and women that have joined the service or have worked hard to go on to college, were raise along side of the same young men and women that are on the news or already in jail. Seems somebody had dropped the ball somewhere. Maybe it was when we started taking religion out of school and out of public places. If they are not getting any guidance from home they are certainly not getting it from school or the media. I know a lot of good kids out there and my daughter is one of them. I wish more parents would take the time to spend with their children and try and teach them some of the morals that our parents tried to teach us. And if you did not get that kind of guidance from your’s then stand up and start something new. Peace and good day.

It’s the same in Arizona; I try not to watch the news. Perverts are crawling out of their hiding places and doing unthinkable things to children and children are doing unthinkable things to each other. Makes you wonder if parents are even raising their kids or if they are left to their own devices.

azcg - it's the same all over. em's wanting a job and i don't know if i want her out after dark anymore, chances are that if she gets a job it will be in the fast food industry and that means working at least until 9pm and that means coming home in the dark and i don't think i like that idea. i'll have to take her to and from work and i don't get around good enough to be reliable in always being able to do that, i might have to let her carry a gun.
