Letter: Violence a product of our new culture

To the editor:

As our nation observes this Christmas season with much sadness over the carnage at Newtown, Conn., we stand at awe as to how such an evil occurrence could happen.

All of the experts from various backgrounds are searching how to prevent such a hideous thing from repeating itself. One look at how our young people have been impacted by our modern culture should leave us real clues as to changes that have occurred in the past years.

The sound of Christmas carols that began right after Thanksgiving have stopped. Schools have removed prayers and teachings about our creator that are now against the law. These principles have been replaced with violent video games, no accountability for bad behavior, sex education at very young ages, and a sense of, if it feels good, do it — you are your own master.

These are the products of our culture. We have allowed political correctness transcend over common sense.

Let us bring back our nation’s culture! We have listened to wrong influences for too long.
