We wonder why tiny ones are anxious and have nightmares. Why young children are violent and older children commit crimes that once were never spoken of in their hearing. Exposure to every ugly, hateful, hideous sight and sound is not funny business for their hearts and minds.
No, we do not participate in it. Though grownups have the freedom to expose themselves to these things and though they think they are not really affected by them, the truth is that there is a bigger picture they choose to ignore. A society that embraces what is monstrous and gruesome will see the consequences.

Unfortunately we live along a major road and it isn't really safe for kids to go door to door and cross the street.
