"I set before you life and death, blessing and cursing. Now choose life, that you and your children may live." As a society, we've chosen death instead of life, cursing instead of blessing, so why should we be surprised when we get death instead of life? Our children are victims of choice upon choice made to go against God. We're supposed to teach our children how to follow God and how to truly love each other, but instead we refuse to tell children "Thou shalt not kill" because that would be too religious. I know I'm speaking too broadly--there are many many who do teach their children as they should, but we all suffer when so many don't, and as a society we are reaping what we've been sowing for decades.
