Eliduc, I totally agree.
This world has always had some sickness and evil in it....but amplifying it and glorifying it with today's technology and media does de-sensitize our young. It's a horrible thing.
Not so many years ago, when my kids were pre-teen and even into their teenaged years, they had a whole world of fun out back in our tree row. The neighbor boy and my boys built an incredible 'fort'. They used an sold camper topper for the main part, then added on with wood, sticks, and lots of creativeness. They had a kitchen, beds, a mailbox that I delivered notes to, and they even planted a small garden.
That is the kind of thing our kids should be doing, in my opinion, instead of being planted before TV and video games.
My boys did eventually get video games....but I dissuaded it a long long time.
Stan, I also totally agree. Drinking age at 18.....shudder. Voting at 16? No way! Scary stuff.
