As a Canadian, I can understand your confusion about Americans and their love of guns. You have been influenced and ruled by Britain for quite some
time. America has that rugged individualism and values freedom in all aspects of our lives.
Our Hollywood community has pandered more and more to violence and action in movies etc and it really is over the top. Not to mention all the horror
and disgusting porno. I sound prudish but the trash on Broadway and Hollywood has definitely demeaned and lowered our expectations of true
The really vile and almost cartoonish violent video games are purely male porno and lack reality but definitely very effective in addicting our young
We need a real revolution in what we value in American life and what we want for our children.
More and more violence in entertainment seems to have spilled over to a sad reality whether it be guns, horror, high speed chasing, worship of
We have lost the sense of community and hide in internet personas that have nothing to do with who we really are and is very attractive to those
suffering from illness who hide behind very sad, lonely and scary online angry diatribes.
I would like to see a return to smaller community schools where parents know each other and take more interest in all children and their parents. The
more we know about one another the more we will care and perhaps that can help those who are suffering from loneliness and illness and family
The more attention the community shares, perhaps less time, money and energy will be spent with inappropriate, violent entertainment. Perhaps within
those smaller schools and PTA meetings and community celebrations we can recapture "small town" lifestyles and concern for all citizens and neighbors,
but especially our children who spend way too much time away from families and feeling a part of their community home.
