What is violence?

No matter how many weapons America has, the amount of police officers, the amount of people who try to do their best to make their society safer, violence always finds a way to happen. As people begin to grow up they begin to have the mindset as their parents, because as a child their parents are their first teachers. Many times the act of violence occurs because the person committing the crime is going through a rough time at home, they went through a very rough experience previously in their life so they want to keep that chain into making someone else go through a rough time as themselves.

As Bill Cosby once said, “I want to get violence – I want schools to start from K through 12 to just every day have teachers understand that they don’t want to talk about anything that is violent, and they want to explain to the children how bad violence is and how behavior – violent behavior, is something that they really should not practice and think about.”

From this quote that Cosby said it clearly shows that the act of violence starts when a person is a child and they need to be taught right from wrong, so they may grow up to have their mindset into what it is that they want to be successful. In addition, violence is an act that should be taught to people from a young age, because as people begin to teach them right from wrong as they get older they won’t obey because they already have their mindset developed into how they see things, and it will be too late to change their way of seeing things in life.

Going on with violence, it is the act of hurting someone physically, but yet also it is when someone purposely is doing something to make another person feel bad about themselves, so they may gain confidence or the pleasure of making someone feel less than themselves. Violence is not just an assault, an aggression towards someone or something, violence is anything and everything that has to do with negatively attraction towards another person. But yet, violence is something that may take a person’s life, that may take something beautiful into something being destroyed, sad, dark, or dead. Violence is being seen  many things such as in the media, our schools, in our societies, and throughout our daily lives, but with one person not following it’s surroundings he/she may make a change, a change into saving a life, but most importantly to keep something beautiful.
