Video games, movies are the problem

What is with our youth? Well, I know. My grandson wanted me to prove to the world that his grandma could play video games. I bought a Playstation and hooked it up to my TV.

I got one of the popular games and began playing it. It was this little strange guy who had to traverse a tricky trail to get to the other side.

There is dexterity needed avoiding treacherous traps and other huge pitfalls. If he didn’t make it, he died.

I managed to get the little guy past some of the pitfalls, but honestly, he died every time.

There is a level of frustration that begins to build and build and build. I didn’t want the little guy to die and I got angrier and angrier every time he did.

Why not just kill him and get it over with? I did not last long at video games.

Believe you me, video games are beyond an adventure. Our reptilian brain’s language is images and it does not know real from unreal. So it sees these video games as real.

See, if they kill or die in a video game, it is all right to kill or die, period. We are feeding our young people ideas of killing.

My youngest son said that some of the video games actually use guns with which to kill people. All of these school marauders just see life as one big video game. And how about our movies?

It is not guns causing the problem, it is video games and movies.

Let us show our young people the truth of life. These video games and most movies are not the truth.
