A conversation on violence
by Charles Shaughnessy
Our society, like any civilized, 21st century society, is faced with many fundamental dilemmas. They are fundamental because they run through the very fabric of that society and affect us all in so many subtle and not-so-subtle ways. I am talking about things like freedom, security, drugs, economic disparity and violence.

by Matt Boren
Amanda Bynes is using social media as a weapon. And although most of us can laugh off her ugly tirades and chalk her up as a girl in need of some attention, what we can’t laugh off are the 2 million-plus followers she has attracted since she started bullying people on Twitter. Amanda, at the end of the day, isn’t the crisis here. The throngs of people who are taking her lead and insulting people for all the world to see is our cultural crisis. And it is ours. Yours and mine.

  1. These are both such good and insightful articles that pose such difficult questions! I don't know the answers, and I don't know if there are simple answers. I do believe that everything starts with the parents! With all the new technology, parenting has gotten a whole lot harder!!
