Back in time...or into the future

After reading this morning that 21 year old Whitney Heichel's body was found and she was murdered by her neighbor my mind started to recall all the recent murders that have been on the news...
Teenager kills brother, sister and then mother...
Mothers body found, Adult son admits to killing
8 year old girl never made it to school, 4 days later her body found dismembered in a ditch.
... these are just the headlines that are coming to mind from the last couple of weeks.

What kind of world are we living in that this is okay? To take someones life?
Sitting here thinking of all the media, movies, games, stories that my generation and the next generation see perverts the mind that murder, stealing, suicide, rape, lying (the list could go on and on) is okay.
What is the purpose of these events? What is going through your head when you alone decide you should take someone's life?
I know this is a little more harsh then some things I usually would write, but it is just so disturbing that all these people who had dreams and aspirations for life never get the chance to "change the world" or simply enjoying living in it. Some messed up in the head person decided to take life into his/her own hands and play God.

I know you can't change the past, but what about our future? What is happening to our next generation?

Can't we go back in time to the days of the Brady Bunch, Andy Griffith, Chips, Gilligan's Island... things in these shows and from this era brought wholehearted enjoyment without horrifying evils. Even the music of the past is better than most we have today... instead of harsh crushingly loud raging people "singing" (if you can call it that) about hatred, death & darkness, there was the Beach boys, Ricky Nelson, The Carpenters, Barry Manilow, and so on.
You can't wear rose colored glasses and ignore life, but you can always hope for a better place for you and the generation to follow. You can't change history, but if you don't learn from it you will have more heartache than man should even imagine.

History repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce. -Karl Marx
