As we approach Christmas, have you thought about the Christmas gifts you will be placing for your children under the tree?
How many of you bought learning tools for them, How many of you bought “Angry Birds”? The title alone is frightening.
I am currently at retirement age now and when I look back and remember our Christmas there was never any kind of destructive gifts under our tree.
Most parents do not even have the slightest idea what destructive games they are buying their children, the killings and shootings are constant.
Video games that have this kind of material in them should be banned from sale. Another destructive culprit and the worst is our favorite friend the television.
Where do you think your children get their ideas from?
When we were kids, there was no violence on TV. We had mostly cartoons, westerns, and game shows, If someone got shot in a western it was mostly in the shoulder or leg, then they were taken to jail. Hardly ever did someone die.
We are teaching our children to kill!
We are at fault because we give them access to this filth.
If we stop buying it maybe it will go away.
Get your child off the streets, get them enrolled in church and youth programs where they have people that care about them, The YMCA, Boys and Girls Clubs and of course the Scouts.
Start a youth program in your neighborhood. The boy that killed these children was still a child himself.
Our children must be saved and only we as parents can do this.

Several months ago I wrote a letter to the editor taking to task President Obama on his lack of leadership (“Obama has earned no points for his leadership,” Sept. 2, 2013).
Writer should cast aside the anger and suspicion of religion
In the March 6 edition of your paper, David Crockett wrote a letter condemning religion, with particular emphasis on Christianity (“How can we respect a religion when it subjugates women?”).
Without leadership, what can you expect to happen to us?
Psalm 11:3 — If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?
The foundation of our nation “America” was built on Christian principles, values and prayers of our founding for fathers. And God did bless America. But in 1963 our Supreme Court saw fit to remove prayer from our public schools. In 1973 our Supreme Court in Roe v. Wade made abortion legal.
Some good may come of this
