From shootings at MIT (i.e., the Tsarnaev brothers) to the University of Central Florida to the Ronald E. McNair Discovery Learning Academy in Decatur, Ga., nearly every shooting over the last year in Wikipedia’s “list of U.S. school attacks” involved a young man whose parents divorced or never married in the first place.
Thankfully, most boys growing up in fatherless families are peaceful, but it only takes a handful to wreak havoc and destroy so many lives.
Liberals immediately retort : “so what are we supposed to do, ban divorce?” There are no simplistic solutions to the problem, but it would be unwise to thereby ignore the true root of the issue. And yes, we would need to make some difficult decisions and cultural changes regarding family life. There’s no other way. Government can’t save us, that much we’ve learned over the last 40 years or so.
