Weapons and Kids

With the recent shooting at an elementary school in Connecticut, there have been concerns on how to raise awareness of this gruesome issue with the children.

Fear is usually inculcated in these innocent souls and parents and society is the number one reason to inflict it within them.

Recently a Utah kid took the gun to school saying that if such an intruder comes in, he could protect himself and his classmates.

First of all, How did the boy get access to a gun? What was going on in the mind of an 11 year old boy that he carried a gun to school?

However, it is pretty clear that when his parents told him about the incident, he was beyond terrified that he wanted to protect himself in school. Unfortunately, with the same weapon that took so many lives.

These children are blameless. They are exposed to the crime, and how they perceive it, can be clueless.

Parents should keep a close eye on their offspring's and check on their behavior after they are told the harsh realities of life. Some kids could take a positive stand but, there are some who could be negative about it.

Mantra for today: Innocence is valuable therefore, when destroyed should be kept an eye upon.
