My personal thought is the respect for life has been removed from our society. When women are allowed to destroy their unborn children by the millions with such casual attitudes, this get passed on to every one. Then people are suprised that someone can enter a movie theater and shoot at hundreds of people. Another can break into an elementary school and shoot 20 children. Those people don't respect their own life, why would they respect other lives? The disintegration of moral standards, and being taught what is right and wrong depends on your perspective is where a society collapses. And those who have created the break in society standards claim no responsibility.
