I don't know why I watch the news or read the paper anymore.
Jazzledazzle: "I don't know why I watch the news or read the paper
anymore."To gain knowledge and learn truth. Because the
knowledge of truth is power. Truth may not always be happy or pretty but with
it, we have the power to make informed decisions about how to lead our lives,
influence others and try avoid the ugly truths.
Many people do not watch or listen to the local 'news'. It is always
sad, tragic events that make 'news'. By contrast, I
watched the LDS church world news between conference sessions and was edified
and uplifted with the feeling that the earth was being prepared to be renewed
and receive it's paradisical glory.**Joseph Smith's 10th
article of faith.
more then 1,500 kids are killed every year by the abusers and its time to get
off the sidelines, when you see abuse happen it is your business, report it!
Tolstoy; you're right. If there was knowledge that the child had been
abused, it should have been reported. The mother of the child had just broken
off relationship with the father, in another article, it speculates that this
was his way of retaining control of the child and the mother. What a sad story.
Women need to pay attention to this. When you finally have the courage and
wisdom to end it with an abusive man, just get out. Take the kids and get out.
Don't discuss it with him, don't leave the kids with him. Flee!! The
more time you spend talking to him about it, the more opportunities he gets to
hurt you and your kids - and your pets.The abuse increases dramatically
when you try to get free. Just flee! Quietly figure it out ahead of time and
flee.I speak from experience. It was very hard, but I did it. He is on
his third wife now - I was his first. When wife #2 decided to get out, he was
even more scary with her. The abuse you see in the relationship is the tip of
the iceberg compared to what you will see as you are getting out. Scary.just flee
He had a gun available to bear and use.
The child's grandmother told the Deseret News Saturday that her
stepdaughter and the child's mother, broke up with Petersen Tuesday, which
she said may have driven Petersen to what she called "insanity." Johnson
said he did not know what might have been the motive for the shooting.==========I think he was taking SSRI anti-depressants.In the meanwhile - the gun lobby says criminals and the mentally ill should
have free and unfettered access to any gun they want.Who's the
one "insane"?The one pulling the trigger?orThe
one giving him the gun?
