From the streets of Chicago – where children watched and an adult taped a child be beaten to death – to Richmond High School where children watched a child's innocence ripped from her soul, we have seen what happens when children lose respect for life.Keeping these kids in school longer to be raised and supervised by the state is not the answer to our violent youth problem. It only serves as a perfect example of the lefts desire to take no responsibility for anything-thrashing parental rights and responsibility and giving it to the school. It is easier to pawn these kids off to people who don't love them, having them become reliant and dependent on a bad system right out of the crib. It is another fallacy, wrapped in an illusion.
This is the direct result of kids feeling unraised and unloved. It is also the result of kids growing up without adult structure and high expectations. Communities can become Lord of the Flies environments in which the kids make adult decisions and they decide wrong every single time.
We have got to answer the question, "How much do we love our kids?"
The answer must be enough to create smaller, loving schools with longer school days and years. These schools are structured and driven by high expectations.
How much do we love our children?
