"Let's Talk"

Can we do anything to help heal our kids?

I asked a question on The Strength of a Woman FB page concerning our children in the U.S and all the recent school shootings. Recently, I was in a nail salon and decided to do a little survey subtly with a couple women, to get their view points on the epidemic in America. I asked one lady who was white, and in her late 50s early 60s her view point on the situation. She said, "there was nothing we can do about it, just stop looking at the news so you don't have to hear about it.  Don't go outside because everyone is just crazy these days." She also mentioned her husband retired from the school system because he said, " the kids these days are out of hand."  So, I sum up her viewpoint as there is nothing that can be done, so don't worry about it and do your best to stay away from it. The next woman I spoke with slipped out and told me her exact age of 40, she was an African American woman and her viewpoint after we talked a little more in depth about the problem, was that she has talked to her friends with children and she would tell them what they needed to do. She didn't realize she was judging the women she was talking too by indicating they weren't doing their job as mothers. She and I talked a little bit more, and I shared with her that maybe the women are tired or broken, and have a loss of hope. As I shared my point of view with her, I could see her facial expression change, I could see her eyes getting a little watery. Had I touched an area of brokenness in her? Was she tired and she was trying to be the strength for others? I guess I will never know, but I do know this, changing the laws to give teachers the right to carry guns, and the school personnel that right as well, is not going to change the outcome. 


What Can We Do To Help The Kids?
In my point of view, I believe when we let children know they mean something, they are something, and have something to give, then change will start taking place. Kids are crying out for help, they are using guns as their voice to show how deep their pain is, love covers a multitude of sins, love heals a multitude of pains and love allows us to have hope in the midst of a dark world. What may I ask is your viewpoint on this subject matter, your voice is important?
