The state of American violence - December 2013
I certainly have no answers, but for some reason this latest event of American violence struck me harder than most of these mind numbing events of the last few months.
The young 17 year old struck down by a fellow student who had apparently appraised his self worth as that of a dissed debate team member. His real target of course was the debate coach/teacher who had apparently let him go.
Games involving the use of symbols (words) are always fun. When our young academics use their proficiency in using these words to self appraise their worthiness to society we must take pause.
Mr. Pierson was distraught that he had apparently been dropped from the team.
