But none of the stabbing victims died, allegedly. I'd lose my shit on this guy.

Mostly I feel kind of numb to this. I saw the headline on my phone at breakfast and my gut reaction was that it's not all that shocking at this point. I feel kind of guilty about not reacting more, but typing things like "oh my god" on here or facebook or whatever, doesn't do anything for me.

Then again, I'm only reading text about it. I don't have a TV and it seems like I can't bring myself to look at any pictures so

well yeah, but i mean it's that kind of paranoia or distrust that creates these small but powerful coalitions who take an absolutist stand on all of these issues

Oh, you certainly can't, no doubt. But bread's question was, do you attempt to shield them from terrible things in the world, or engage with them on the fact that these monstrous events often happen. I'd rather gradually introduce my hypothetical child to the idea of the world being shitty, rather than have them grow up naive and have that worldview violently shattered later on in life. I'd think that sort of trauma would be infinitely more disturbing than introducing a realistic worldview to your child.

Again, I don't have a kid, so I have no idea what I'm talking about.

I have talked to a lot of children in Iraq who have grown up knowing the realities of war and violence. I will do everything in my power to keep my kids naive.
