  •  You are right, it's a little different (9+ / 0-)

    Very little different, actually.

    Which is, I think, the point that many people are making here, with both their personal history moments and their messages about their own kids or grandkids today.

    While we hear much of violence and danger to children these days, the truth statistically is that there is LESS danger to kids than there was even 20 years ago.

    Less murder and violent crime.

    It just seems like more of it is happening because it's all over the Internet and cable news 24 hours a day, seven days a week instead of once each day during the dinner hour.

    The only thing worse now, I think, is the occurrence of public mass shootings. There are many more of them than there used to be.
