I am shocked at some of the comments I’ve read online tonight about House Whip Steve Scalise. The man is fighting for his life after being shot and I’ve seen a lot of comments wishing him MORE ill-will. I thought the left was supposed to be the compassionate, inclusive, loving bunch. I’m not exactly sure what is going on in this world.
There are some sick people in this world.
“You will know them by their fruit.”
Is there an innate human nature? Or is it learned? This is today’s question…

At birth, I believe people are born neutral. They born with a growth force which allows them the change throughout life, and capable being anything they want to be.
Personality development is most influenced by learning, early-rearing patterns, values that we are taught, environment, relationship with others, modelling the behaviors of others, and cultural influences.
As people grow older, I believe they are capable in moderate changes in their personality, but determined by their early childhood experience.
Change is likely to be most facilitated by a focus on the conscious mind, thoughts, behaviors, feelings, the past, present, and future, the unfinished business, memories, and one’s “real” self.
This is actually an activity box in one of my textbook,
I should expand it into more paragraphs of explanation, why I view human nature and personality like that.
I’m gonna leave this here first and do the writings later because there’s

I am of the opinion that human desire leads to greatness and weakness. Desire is the part of human condition that leads to murder, burglary, rape, etc. I enjoyed the perspective of this article and thought to share with you guys…

-homicide, gun control and the American, or more directly, human experience
In 2012 Chicago had 450 deaths by shooting, Detroit 350, LA over 500, New York City 400, Philly 300, D.C., where our legislators meet on capitol hill, 100.
Chicago’s murder rate matches all of Japan and is higher than Spain, Poland and pre-war Syria. But Chicago isn’t even the worst. New Orleans and Detroit are in competition year to year for the number 1 spot of most murders by firearm per 100,000 people.
Of course where there is a higher population there will be more murders. Let’s break it down by gun murders per 100,000 people. Chicago had 18 murders per 100,000, New Orleans 54, LA 7, Philly 21, NYC 5, D.C. 13, Detroit 57.
Interestingly, New York, California, Illinois and Pennsylvania have the strictest gun control laws yet house these cities with high murder rates by firearm.

A Hansen Chronicle provides perspective on the Charleston shootings. Give her a Follow, you will enjoy! I have disabled comments so make sure to leave comments with the original author!
A couple of weeks ago, an incredibly moving scene played out in the wake of yet another mass shooting – this time in Charleston, South Carolina. At the bond hearing of the accused shooter, family members of those murdered professed their forgiveness of the murderer.
I’ve been pondering what it is about this scene that makes me uncomfortable. Surely an act of forgiveness — of the most horrendous of offenses, from the most personally wounded of positions — is to be commended, isn’t it?
To me, there is no question that these anguished victims, going against the normal human impulse to lash out and to seek revenge, are drawing from a resource they would likely describe as outside of themselves. It is nothing short of inspiring when someone of faith demonstrates the willingness to live it authentically in such a profoundly agonizing situation.
None of us can say with certainty…
