What have we become?

As the weekend nears and I think over the message I'll deliver this week I can not help but to think about recent news events. Here are two recent stories from the headlines.

Story 1:

Allen Iverson paid for the funeral of Kevin Johnson who died Tuesday morning after his family chose to take him off life support. He was 22. Why did Iverson offer to pay for the funeral? What caused this otherwise healthy young man to die? Rewind 3 years. Apparently three years ago Kevin was at a trolley stop waiting for a ride when some guys approached him and demanded that he hand over the Allen Iverson jersey Kevin was wearing. After refusing to hand the jersey over one of the men shot Kevin in his neck. He was paralyzed. Recently his respirator failed which lead to severe brain damage. His family took him off of life support.

Story 2:
The craze of the last 24 hours has been all about the new Play Station 3. Released last night at
midnight in most places the new gaming console costs upwards of $500 and Sony conveniently created a shortage by offering only 400,000 systems around the country. Aside from the overpriced gaming system my concern comes from what I read today.

"Two armed thugs tried to rob a line of people waiting for the new PlayStation 3 game system to go on sale early Friday and shot a man who refused to give up his money, authorities said."

What have we become?
