Day 77: These Children Are Us

Today,  10  children among whom was a boy of 12 and another of 13 years were detained  as alleged perpetrators of the murder of a teenager of 16 in Spain.  It's the second time this weekend that violent children are topic in the news: in the UK one of two teenage boys started shooting at people in Liverpool and hit a boy in his leg.  Through a quick Google search one realises that this topic is saddly very common.
Regardless the fact that the crime in Spain involved a rivalry between latin-america gangs, we must look at the starting point for such behaviour that goes beyond ethnic groups. It is about our accepted and allowed human nature.
Not surprisingly, yesterday Spanish unemployment has hit a new record high of 5.64 million. I ask myself:  
What morality do we have in telling children to not use guns, if adults themselves promote and recruit for war? 
Who created these weapons in first place? 
What example do children see in the adults of today if we cannot even fix the current economic crisis to a lasting solution
 What motivation will these children find to study if in the end they will probably do something that they do not enjoy at all?
Aren't we ALL responsible for these crimes which reflect what we have been allowed and accepted to be created in our world?

A little bit of self-respect for human Life would be enough for everyone to see that we must become our own example of Life; to see that this economic system is actually based on war, in competition and in taking Lives. But Life was given to Us! Things are not alright and adults and children are all responsible.

This also takes me to the film and TV industry, that uses violence for their own benefit, while children simply learn via copy & paste. Do you notice how are we brainwashed by the violence just from the movie titles, not to mention the images? Have a look: only this year we've got  This Means War, Tomorrow, When the War Began; The Flowers of War ; Declaration of War ; Kill List ; and the list will increase throught the year...
Is this the world we want to live in and our children to live in? Of course not. In common sense we know that we avoid speaking of such themes because we ourselves participate in thoughts of war and of violence.  Children are processing all this information without any guidelines or support. The sad result is that only in the US 13 million children will be bullied this year. (Check out the trailer for Bully)

So now ask yourself: how are you also participating and feeding violence in your mind towards others? Do your thoughts respect all Life?
All we have to do is to stop allowing the thoughts before it becomes our action - because we did not created these thoughts consciously, but these were embedded in our minds through images and shocking titles... Now we know we must stop ourselves, forgive ourselves for what we have become and correct ourselves. And we will then see that the children of the world will also change. This world is a reflection of us all.
If we STAND for Life, children will STAND FOR LIFE too.
