I was just reading another story about senseless violence committed against a 20yr-old in Birmingham. The story goes...the other night a group of guys were at a house shooting dice when an argument started.

From the reports one of the dice game gamblers pulled a gun and shot and killed the 20 yr-old, who didn't even live at the residence where he was shot.

What's really happening? Killing someone over a dice game?

One life taken and another thrown away, 2 lives lost, and all over a dice game.

When did it become so violent that if you are supposedly around people you know that you could lose your life over a petty argument?

When and where did we lose this generation of young?

We are the keepers of our community but, is the respect for human life being kept?, or taught?

When again i ask will all the violence end?
