Why is violence the answer for our youth?

There is immense amount of pressure on the youth of America today.

We are living in a world where so much is happening at once that we may feel like we are getting lost or swallowed in it.

I don’t agree that the Oregon college gunman handled his situation in the correct way, but if he needed help there should be another way for him to get it.

Unfortunately, I was exposed to a similar situation to the shooting in Oregon when I was in high school. The student was upset because of a grade his teacher gave him.

Luckily, the incident at my school did not reach the magnitude as the Oregon college tragedy did because no one was harmed.

My question is how should these young people get help?

It’s upsetting to see so many young people struggling with their emotions or being unable to express themselves and get the help they need.

I’m not sure if there is a solution to this because you cannot help those whom do not want to be helped.  Just thought it was interesting to look at how some younger people are thinking the only way to get what they want is through violence.
