The horrific killing of two journalists by a disgruntled man has again shocked the nation with an unimagined act of violence. Sadly, it seems to be a symptom of our lifestyle where violence is condoned and even fostered. We have become immune.
Look at the reality shows, video games and movies that we watch, all with the recurring theme, it seems, of confrontation, extreme violence and disregard for human life. It even extends to presidential elections where the frontrunner, Donald Trump, has attacked his GOP rivals with offensive language, name-calling and confrontational tactics.
Until we change our way of behaving, we will continue to see acts of inexcusable and senseless violence and anti-social acts.
