Re: "unseen victims" (Your Views, Nov. 23): There is concern about why some first-grade students want to be bullies, hurting other first-grade students, and also why some people want to shoot others in schools. As many know, but some hardly want to realize, there is a reason.
All first-grade students do not want to be bullies, trying to hurl their little classmates. All adults do not want to commit mass murders. So, why do some children and adults want to hurt others, and some want to be kind to others?
"Most babies come into the world ready to be influenced," as my website states. The parent is usually the main influence. If the parent chooses to be a kind parent instead of a dictator parent, the child is likely to feel secure, respected, and happy with life. People who are happy with life usually want to be nice to others and will help make this a more peaceful place instead of a more violent place.
