The schools and college I attended were fine but some young people today are not as privileged as me. There are schools in Milwaukee that have a zero percent rating on the reading capability of their children. Would you send your child to a school like that if you had any other choice? It is not the child's fault that the school he is going to can't teach him.
What exactly is wrong with schools that can't teach children to read? It does not make any difference what is wrong with these schools. Close these schools, lock the doors, fire the teachers and use a bulldozer to raze the school to the ground before they hurt the lives of any more children. Provide the parents of these children with a voucher that will allow them to go to a school that can at least teach them to read.
I recommend that people choose Christian schools for their children rather than secular schools. The secular schools in Milwaukee do not seem to be up to the job.

Relatives from various parts of the country were there. The Hilton is really a good venue for this type of party. We don't go to the Hilton that often and my wife rarely gets to see all her relatives so she was very happy. Sicilians and Germans can really put together a good party when they have a reason. Sometimes they even put together a party without a reason.

Some of our news media and politicians are deliberately obscuring the fact that Christians were targeted in this horrible crime. This crime seems to be a religious hate crime. Its not just a tragedy caused by having an unattended illegal gun laying around for a lunatic to pick up. The news media and politicians that are using this event to advance their own agendas dishonor the people that were killed. The relatives of the dead have a right to say what they believe regarding the situation but I suspect their grief will simply be exploited by the media and politicians. There is room for legitimate disagreement over what our laws should be to prevent future deaths.
Why were Christians the ones that were singled out for death? Could it be the sarcastic hate speech directed at Christians by some parts of our current atheistic culture influenced a lunatic to commit a religious hate crime? Maybe some little sick cartoon on social media influenced the delusional killer. Perhaps the killer was of another religion that considered this act justified. The people are still dead and knowing the reason they were killed will not bring them back.
Not all religions and philosophies of life are equal. There is an absolute right and a wrong for many situations. An idea in the killers head caused him to commit the crime. I am not a person that cares too much for religious norms and behaviors but the killing could have been prevented if the killer had different ideas in his head. The ideas spoken by Jesus in the Bible would have prevented this killing if the murderer had heard and accepted them.
