Stuff > You

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.
