Are We Living in The End Times
We as people worry about our lives every day. Some parents are worrying about their kids because of the crime that's going on. I say that because when you turn on the news all you hear about is: gang violence, a lot of kids getting killed, the older generation is killing the younger generation and etc. I'm pretty sure there hasn't been any good activity that's happening on the news today. Instead of the news channels telling us about so much crime; how about they start giving out stories on who's hiring or the next job fair.
First of all, the reason why we worry so much in our everyday lives is because of the news. The first thing you hear on the news is somebody getting shot during gang activity. That's exactly why parents are scared to send their child outside. I'm sure anyone who is a parent doesn't want to see their child on the news. Seeing your child on the news will be very hard to watch. The younger generation is getting into all this gang violene because there isn't enough jobs out there for everybody. So, they have to sell drugs in order to get money and put food in their bellies. That's not the right path to go unless they are just giving up. News reporters shoud start telling stories on the next place that's hiring. Maybe that will decrease the amount of gang violence we hear everyday.
Secondally, the only way to keep the younger generation out of the streets is to have them working. The more work they get involved in then the less crime it will be. If younger children see their parents being hard workers then they will most likely do the same thing. The younger generation is hanging out with the wrong crowd, that's why there is so much violence. Parents should investigate on who their kids are hanging around. Whomever their kids are hangning around can reflect on thier future. I believe that parents should look at it this way. I feel that parents should watch who their kids hang around because their acquaintances could be killers. That's why it's important to investigate. You never know what your child might get their selves into.
Unfortunately, there is this thing called Social Media where the younger generation gets on. There are social media websites like: Facebook,Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, or Oovoo. These particular websites is where the younger generation feel it's okay to argue with each other and put their business out to the public. Sometimes there are videos of people fighting in schools and other places. This social media has become chaos and I think News Reporters should report stories on this as well. Social media causes crime and violence because, people argue and the arguments can get intense.Once they argue on Social Media websites, they can bring that violence out into the streets. Trust me, this has happend plenty of times. That's not good at all and name calling can be one of the main issues. So, parents have to take their role and watch what their child say on the internet. Some of the younger youth have smart mouths and feel that they don't have to listen to an adult. If they're not trained at home to respect adults, then they won't respect a stranger. But, that doesn't give the older person a right to kill someone else's child.
My whole point of this essay was to bring to your attention about why there is so much vilence today. To sum it all up, there is so much violence because no one is speaking up to stop it. I feel if the younger youth speak up for themselves then something will be done. Once they hear our voices and what we have to say, then that will let other people know we care about the violence that keeps happening. If we don't speak up then the violence and crime will continue. If it continues then the world will eventually end, no one is putting a stop to it. We are living in the end times because of the violence and crime.
