Would it have been better if the 20 children killed in Sandy Hook were killed 7 years before December 14, 2012?

Your standards must be pretty low. Rarely do I encounter anything here resembling genuine thought.

An amazing observation, and the reason I visit TH. I find people who can actually think.

When people reminisce about what America used to be like, some act scornfully toward us. They say living in a Donna Reed world was great for a few, but that there were many suffering souls. The way our country is today makes some of us long for those days which seemed so innocent compared to the harsh, cruel, coarse, and sometimes murderous days we exist in today.

Yet most would argue that there were still injustices when we were growing up fifty years ago. Black people who had been freed a century before were still not treated equally in most parts...
