The truest sense of where our culture is was displayed in Long Island, NY in the morning hours of Black Friday. A man was trampled to death by a deranged bargain-hunting shoppers. Trampled to death by a monstrous insane mob is more fitting description. How can these things happen when we are suppose to be celebrating the importance of our friends and families and most importantly reflecting on the birth of Christ and instead we are so bent on getting that Sony flat screen TV for fifty percent off that we will stop at nothing, including killing a guy, to snatch it away before someone else will. And then people have this crazy notion that its the economy that’s driving people to this kind of amoral behavior. Well excuse me but my grandmother lived through the depression with several children and in all of her stories she told me over and over again I never once heard her say,”Well there was this one Christmas that I was at the five and dime store and this crowd of people killed this clerk who got in their way to the latest radios that were on sale at 75 cents each”. We are not talking about food or any other necessity here we are talking about a nice extra commodity in life so we can see the Dallas Cowboys in HD on Sundays. I don’t know what to say to this. We as a society have truly lost our minds and our souls.
