A 7th grade boy was robbed at his bus stop at gunpoint for his shoes and jacket.
What kind of skewed individual threatens a child’s life over apparel?
What sort of warped mentality dictates taking that course of action?
Never mind the gun. The gun is not the problem; merely a tool utilized to pursue an agenda of valuing stuff over people, a ‘me first’ point of view.
This type of attitude is obviously unacceptable. Yet it’s just one step removed from the materialistic value system our society promotes and covets.
