It’s not supposed to go down like this.
I’m outraged and disgusted about what happened at Virginia Tech earlier this week.
Young men are not supposed to die before their fathers, and beautiful young women shouldn’t leave their mother’s sides when they’re still in college. That’s just not the natural order of things.
You’re supposed to leave your kids behind, not the other way around.
Did you know, in the last 5 years over 100 people have been murdered on college campuses and universities across America?
That’s a very sad but true statistic.
When I was in school, all you had to worry about was getting caught smoking dope in your dorm rooms… or not being able to buy beer on Sundays… or working up enough courage to ask a woman out on a date.
How do you even start fixing this problem? Is it even fixable?
How do you eliminate violent anger and finger-pointing?
You can’t FORCE better parenting any more than you can FORCE better tooth-brushing.
I know I’m not smart enough to figure out any of these answers, and I know it’d be fitting and well-deserved right now to say something like, “enjoy your time while you’re here because life most definitely is NOT forever…” or “Hug your children and tell them how much you love them and what they mean to you.”
And while both of these things are true, they simply won’t solve the problem or eliminate all the bad guys. It won’t prevent the next psychotic violent moron from snuffing out yet another innocent life.
If you have some insight here, let me know and I will share it with my subscribers, because for a change… I really am at a loss for words.
Hoping for better tomorrows, Craig Garber
