Restore the future

To the Editor:

I am an 80-year-old grandmother and I am very concerned about the violence in our country. What hope is there for peace in the world when there is so much violence in our own country.

Many people are talking about controlling gun laws. My suggestion is to implement a law immediately to ban all sales of violent video games. These games are a bad influence on the minds of our children. It is saturating their minds with evil and danger.

And as far as network programing, let us bring back sitcoms from the early years, where there was love of family structure, stability and laughter. We need to expose our children to good and not evil.

Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a still a mystery. Today is a gift. Let us use the present to restore the future for the youth of today.
