Violence In America

The cycle of violence in America continues to repeat. Americans, citizens of a country founded on the principles of ego, self-interests (money), and most importantly violence in its unlimited forms, should not be surprised by its existence. Ego driven violence, a cornerstone of American culture from work to place, is embraced and taught early in life. We quickly shun ideas, creative minds, and leaders as strange or weak for advocating open hand rather than a closed fists solutions to life's challenges. History, history or religious books are often used and cited to support our actions. Rest assured, reasons that place blame on the individuals rather than society, such as "they were all mentally ill" will support society's cultural norms rather than force us to follow a more enlightened path that breaks the cycle of violence.

Headline: Is There Any Way For Schools To Prevent Shootings?

Could anyone have stopped this? That's one of the biggest questions for schools and educators as the nation takes in the facts of the shooting in Parkland, Fla., that has left 17 dead and 23 injured.

While the U.S. remains a global outlier by far when it comes to mass shootings, and owns 42 percent of the world's guns, the fact is that most schools in the country have taken steps to prepare for this kind of threat.
