Comment on Current Events: In the Wake of Tragedy

9 Oct

Last week a university student visited a friend’s room, where he used her computer to live stream images from a secretly placed video camera showing his own roommate as he shared an intimate moment with a male friend.  A few days later, the victim of the prank tragically jumped off the George Washington Bridge.  In the week following, our media has responded on many levels, addressing the issues of bullying, invasion of privacy, gay rights, and personal responsibility

While all of these issues deserve a fair amount of discussion, in our homes and within our families we must discuss the realities of these actions at the most basic level.  Vicky Bell’s Letter to My Daughter (in the Wake of Senseless Tragedy) expresses this the best I have seen, and I hope you will take the time to read it.  And share it with your children.
