I once had to write a paper for school where I explored younger generations and our “lack of empathy.” It was not a topic that I chose, but one that was assigned to me.

I discussed problems with being distanced from others using social media and the Internet, but I sit here tonight wondering if it’s really just younger generations.

With mass shootings coming more and more often, I have become significantly less shocked with each one. With mass shootings being more common, and with no changes being made, it brought up a thought. Does this show a lack of empathy in our country as a whole?

It should not have to take a personal attack on lawmakers for them to realize the problem we have. I feel there may be a larger lack of empathy in our country as a whole rather than just in younger generations, like some may think.
