The Jazz Singer
"We are what is wrong with our country. We have removed accountability and responsibility from every aspect of our children's lives. We teach them that life has no value, that family has no value, that truth has no value. That you can hide behind social injustice or discrimination or bullying or whatever other cause du jour to explain away why they do the things they do. We allow our children to become corrupted by violence and call it entertainment, we tell them being antisocial is ok and being this way makes them "unique". We allow them to be disrespectful and then jump all over law enforcement, teachers, bus drivers, coaches or anyone else in authority when they act out in public and have to be disciplined. Then we throw back our heads and howl when people go off and shoot up a crowd of innocents and we scream for more mental health care and gun control. Here is the solution. Stop raising ASSHOLES. Teach your children the value of liberty. Teach them that their actions have consequences in society. Teach them to respect themselves and others. Teach them the value of family. Teach them to earn their accolades. Teach them to love themselves. Teach them to love others MORE than themselves. Teach them to be givers. Teach them to be productive members of society. Teach them to stand up for the weak and be strong in the face of adversity. Teach them the VALUE OF LIFE"
