Great Quote

I haven't really commented much on the Virginia Tech shootings last week, mainly because though I find them tragic and heartbreaking I don't find them surprising at all. In a recent article, Chuck Norris (of all people) had the following to say about our collective culpability in this tragedy:

We teach our children they are nothing more than glorified apes, yet we don't expect them to act like monkeys. We place our value in things, yet expect our children to value people. We disrespect one another, but expect our children to respect others. We terminate children in the womb, but are surprised when children outside the womb terminate other children. We push God to the side, but expect our children to be godly. We've abandoned moral absolutes, yet expect our children to obey the universal commandment, ''Thou shalt not murder.''
I could not have said it better. As a society we reap what we sow, and we've sown a lot of ugly the past forty years.
