The time between conception and death is a process we call a lifetime. What one does with the “gift” of life is a choice we all have to make at some point in our development from childhood to adult members of society. We are not given a choice of where we are born or who our parents will be. Is luck that some are born into extreme wealth while others live in extreme poverty. It does not matter which lifestyle one lives the desire to live is equally ingrained. The rich live to be able to enjoy their wealth while the poor have to spend most of their day trying to find the basics of daily life to survive. The shooting at a high school in Texas this week shows the fragility of life that we all face on a daily basis. We now have kids using guns to commit mass murder of their peers at school.
America’s gun culture continues unabated we hear about shootings of innocents who are just beginning their lives. There is a disrespect for human life that cannot be explained by those who we call our leaders in WashingtonD.C. We are a nation of laws but we are now also seen by the rest of the world as a nation in decline due to a lack of respect for basic human life by our kids. We need to do better than this as a society.
