Parkland School Shooting And Problems With Society

Kevin Felts political commentator

Another day, another mass school shooting. This time the shooting was at a school in Parkland, Florida. There will be a group of people who blame the gun and ignore the underlying issues with society. Was the gun an issue in the shooting? The gun is no more of an issue than a spoon makes people fat.

Something has gone terrible wrong in society. What is making people, especially young people, turn to violence? Not just turn to violence, but to shoot up a school of defenseless children. We as a culture need to sit down and address the underlying issue.

When they do not cooperate, our happiness is destroyed. Such as a friend who tries to steal your wife, or a wife who cheats. Continue Reading….

Said Goodbye To A Friend

Saturday, March 2, 2013 I said goodbye to an old friend. C.D. Broussard lived life as it was supposed to be lived. He never had a harsh word to say about anyone, not once did I see him get angry. When C.D was at your house you were never bored, as C.D. could carry on a conversation with anyone. Whether it was computers, comic books, video games,,, C.D. knew something about it.

In December 2011 C.D. Broussard was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer.

He lived the good life,
He fought the good fight,
and now he rest as he has never rested before.

C.D. Broussard lost his struggle with cancer in February 2013. Continue Reading….
