Voice: Shooting incidents show it is time to teach kids morals

March 13, 2001

It's 2001 and yet another school shooting on our hands, but this one hits us hard not because we know the people but because it's so close to home. So close we could almost hear the cries of the friends who lost their loved ones, so close because it has happened again.

Just when we thought that it wouldn't happen again because we have talked about it, it does. Why? Because we don't take the responsibility of being a friend, teacher or parent, whatever you may be. I see it as your job as a person of this world to help people in need. Help them understand the difference between right and wrong in today's society.

Our minds are being blocked by the ever-growing violent music and TV. It's our job to stop this now. We cannot let these violent acts of destruction go on, so I call upon everyone to reach out and help teach your kids some morals. Teach them to love one another.
