... the other Black experience

By now most have heard about the 17 year old man who was planning a terrorist attack. Just days after a heated argument between me and my friend about the Sandy Hook tragedy.
I recently read a quote of Morgan Freeman in which he describes how the news reports more on the man who did the crime than the victims. This inspires the next "psycho" to "top" this kill countin somewhat score fashion. My friend made his point by stating how the count has never been as high but that there lies proof. Proof that this young man might have had the thought in his mind that he'd "top" the previous record set in Colorado.

Societies biggest monster is FAME. Fame is sought out by most in hopes of acceptance from those who have shunned them or ignored. Some will seek it through outlets of talent and skill while others will seek these routes of violence and notoriety. A cycle I'm sure the news wouldn't cease because who creates fame but the media. Fame should be created for the countless teachers who did what they could to save, or even attempt, the survivors.

Hope I get some feedback for all that typing.
