Tyler, Tx — The first part of what I'm about to say came from a guy on Facebook this past weekend.
I don't even know the guy, but he summed up how I felt about Friday's horror.
And I paraphrase, "people look for some kind of fix-all solution whether it be gun control or mental illness treatment. I'm reminded by a quote from Barbara Bush who said 'your success as a family, our success as a society depends not on what happens at the White House, but what happens inside your house."
For most of my life, I've seen us take God or any morality of out the school and substitute it with so called "reason." If it feels good do it was the cry back in the 70s. We did it and now look.
I've seen Hollywood mock family values and what so many of us used to stand for. A lot of good people didn't want to be made fun of or called out, so they shut their mouths and took it.
You look at the violence in games and on the screen and TV and we have been desensitized.
But now, when the mess we've made is coming back to haunt us, what do our leaders do? They once again stand up
like kids wanting to ask a question in class and want to ban guns or have hearings or just be seen.
What happened Friday is just not a gun issue. This is a heart issue.
And until we change that, we'll see much more of what we've seen the past few days.
That's my point, of view what's yours?
