The country continues to mourn the victims of the tragic attack Uvalade, TexasThis tragedy is the reason why lawmakers are divided.
US Representative Ronnie JacksonWho represents the 13th Congressional District of Texas, says how different things were when he was growing up.
“I grew up in a small town in West Texas, not too small for Uvalade, and I never imagined that something like this would happen when I grew up, but when I grew up, things were different – the focus was on family and community and church. And I think we knew each other. And I’m not saying that people in the world don’t know each other, but I think it’s taken away from us. I think our culture has changed in the last 30 or 40 years, and especially Those things have been attacked. “
Jackson then blames various factors that he believes are harmful to children, including rap music.
“I just think kids are exposed to all sorts of horrible things these days. I look back and I think the horrible things they hear when they listen to rap music, the video games they’ve seen since they were very young with this horrible violence and stuff, and I just think they have access to the internet regularly. Which, of course, made the video an overnight sensation.
Finally, Jackson emphasizes the importance of working together to discover “why” and “how” such tragedies occurred.
