Funny, how I didn't hear anything about this in the news?
Yet the Zimmerman/Martin case has been on the news for the last 18 months.
And we wonder why our society gets worse by the day...

To that lady, a real hero.
Stories like these, that will give us hope and uplift our spirits, should be put on the news more often.

I'm actually surprised you haven't. Saw it on CNN and Tom Joyner interviewed her on his show. She sounded like a real genuine nice lady. She potentially saved many kid's lives. Good person

Watching vine videos of 13 years olds shaking their asses; or 9 year olds killing themselves because their boyfriend broke up. Or how about the influence Jersey Shore has on our younger generation.

From all the terrorism, to the bombings then to the school shootings...how exactly is our society improving?

Is there some big trend of 9 year old suicides?

Kids have always been influenced by stupid shit and violence has always been around.

If you're telling me our digitalized world doesn't have a bad influence on our society, then go take some courses and learn the statistics.

Our divorce rates are up; our kids don't respect their elders; too much violence; too much drug addictions; too many bad role models in our society today.

Our children can't stay off their cell phones or internet for longer then 30 minutes.

Better question is though, how exactly is our society improving?

Too much violence? In comparison to what time period? Too many this, too much of that... Do you mind letting us know exactly how much "too much" is? This is what happens when you overexpose yourself to sensational news stories.

Despite what you might think, those are in the minority. Overall 13 year olds have a far better life today than they did 100 years ago, especially those in a minority group.

Statistically I don't think terrorism, bombings, and school shootings account for large numbers of deaths. At least compared to the numbers of kids that died from a lack of work safety laws and treatable diseases. And it isn't like these things are new.

Quote:
The Bath School disaster is the historical name of the violent attacks perpetrated by Andrew Kehoe on May 18, 1927 in Bath Township, Michigan, that killed 38 elementary school children and six adults in total, and injured at least 58 other people.[Note 1] Kehoe first killed his wife, fire-bombed his farm and set off a major explosion in the Bath Consolidated School, before committing suicide by detonating a final explosion in his truck. It is the deadliest mass murder in a school in United States history.[1][2]

watching the video again? I am amazed by the power of LOVE..

love is more powerful than death.. She told the dude she didnt know that she loved him and related her similar experiences to him and he believed her enough not to kill everyone..

she obviously knew if she said the wrong thing (or even if she didn't) he would kill her in an instant..

like I said I hope I have that much courage do what she did in the face of death...

thats what makes humans soo beautiful... courage and love for one another

You guys might not think society or our lifestyles are getting worse, but it's definitely changing at a pace where no one is able to predict an outcome in the near future. There's a lot of things to be worried about though. The lack of hard working professionals in the western world, the lack of interest in politics, the governments monitoring and brainwashing and the fact that everyone is too comfortable and numb to truly care, besides maybe posting a rant online. The destruction of the nuclear family. The rich getting richer and the gap widening. Manipulation of currency and the stocks market. The Lobbying. Technology exponentially advancing, in the hands of the government and corporations.


I mean we might be living in a pretty comfortable age in the Western Hemisphere, but for how long and at what cost? It seems like the balance is hanging by a thread, and once this picture perfect gets spoiled, the outcome won't be pretty.

In my opinion, not only is it inevitable, it is also, in the context of modern history, imminent.
