ACK – COMMERCIAL

I’VE BEEN THINKING ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED IN COLORADO LAST WEEK.

AND I’M TROUBLED.

THE NATION SEEMS TO HAVE LOST ITS MORAL COMPASS.

WE LIVE IN A CULTURE THAT CELEBRATES VIOLENCE AND DEATH.

OUR MOVIES – OUR MUSIC – OUR GAMES –

WE ARE NATION THAT TAKES PLEASURE IN PAIN AND SUFFERING.

WE EXPOSE OUR CHILDREN TO EVIL – AND SEEM SURPRISED WHEN THERE ARE REPERCUSSIONS.

MAKE NO MISTAKE – THE ONLY PERSON RESPONSIBLE FOR WHAT HAPPENED

IN COLORADO – IS THE GUNMAN.

BUT YOU CAN BE SURE THAT POLITICANS WILL CALL FOR GUN CONTROL.

OTHERS WILL CALL FOR A NATIONAL SOUL SEARCHING.

BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY —

I DOUBT ANYTHING WILL CHANGE.

THE SHOOTING IN COLORADO WILL BECOME A DISTANT MEMORY.

MUCH LIKE COLUMBINE – AND VIRGINIA TECH – AND FORT HOOD.

UNTIL ANOTHER DAY COMES – WHEN A YOUNG PERSON DRESSED IN BLACK

PUTS ON A MASK — AND UNLEASHES HELLISH DEMONS.

I’M TODD STARNES.
