With all the furore over terrorists, bombings and the like, Tragic there is no doubt....But another form of Terrorism has reached our shores...the swift, the silent, deadly blade...In stores now, for you to rent, or buy, to further your childrens education, on how to swing the sword, amid all manner of perversion and foreign worship.
The Imperial Army invaded Pearl Harbour, the Enola Gay defended America....
But whose got control of the children's minds???
Dad may I have a sword
A katana Samurai special
to play with outside
I promise I won't hurt my sister.
Sure Son that's ok with me
check with your mother first
to see if she agree's
but promise me you'll be careful
Mom can I have a sword
A katana Samurai special
it's a replica of the real one
going cheap on ebay!
Well if it's only a replica
and won't hurt anyone
I guess that's ok
so long as you check with your father
Dad, Mom said it's ok
so I can go ahead and order
they are going cheap
I promise I will be careful
Screaming emerges from the yard
where little Johnny is playing with
little Sarah, pretending to be a warlord
being careful like he said he would
but he found his best sneakers chewed up
by the families newest addition, the pup
so he swung that razor sharp sword
now, puppies in half on the back lawn!
Oh how they all regret, how they all wish, how they all churn with anguish, knowing it could've been Sarah. They were lucky it was ONLY the PUP, but now they wish more than ever, that they never ever allowed those games into the house, where little Johnny watched them 24/7

|Spose hed think different if he had kids of his own playing with swords........|

|It's all the parents fault...they should have been on the way of that sword instead of the puppy... and any stupid kid that has a mind so easily manipulated as those you speak of shouldnt come out of the barney phase...that way they'll only be closet gays in the future|

|To be expected, eh Ch'erie? Video games and television take the place of Mom and Dad! That's so sad. Whose got control of our children's minds? The dark side...that's who. Brilliant write!

|OMG "Only the PUP"!!!! OMG if that were a child of mine, the closest he would have gotten to that sword was the game. I am not a big fan of Japanese anime, or any other video games, so he wouldn't have even the game.
Your piece High Country Girl, has hit the problem with our children right on the head. Video games teach, and the children do, or at least try to imitate the characters, especially their favorite character, from the game.
And if my son would have injured or killed my puppy, I guarantee he wouldn't sit for a month.
You have penned a very heartfelt and true piece High Country Girl. WE, all of us as parents, should sit down and preview these games before letting our children anywhere near them.
Thank you for sharing.
May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), sister Barbie

|I've been thinking about all the stuff going on today. When my children dabbled with video games they were child like and innocent. Fishing, baseball, NFL, today's games are mini horror shows. Guess if I had kids now my answer would still be the same as it was than. I said no more times than I can count. Maybe part of the problem is that parents don't want to be parents, you think?? Real eye opening write!

|Excellen write Ch'erie and all too true. Like I said in one of my pieces; we don't own a single video game console and my 7 year old boy Jon is not allowed to play with toy guns or any type of toy that teaches or encourages violent behavior. What he is allowed to watch on TV is resticted too. Be safe and may God bless. Paul|

|And where's little Johnny at this moment? lol|

|Why must children be taught all the arts of fighting? Open TV and watch their cartoons, so full of violence. Then we wonder why our youth are so merciless and have no values. Very well written.|
|Reviewed by Regis Auffray
|It's a violent world Ch'erie and I don't see it getting any better. Sad. Thank you. Love and peace to you,

|A powerful write on the dangers that can be displayed on the internet along with the filth or porn. Thank you so much for reminding all of us to have better control over what our children are doing and seeing.|

|It's getting worse, the more I watch...or try to. God help us!

|What little ANIME I've seeen has been quite low key, but this does not surprise me at all...nice write.
|Reviewed by Tinka Boukes
|Ditto Felix..thanks for the insight!!
|Reviewed by Ed Matlack
|I know VERY little about ANIME but it would seem to me to give a sword with a sharp edge on it to a kid is to invite disaster...E & R|
|Reviewed by Karen Vanderlaan
|an important point is made here-our children are in grve trouble in so many aspects-anime being one|
|Reviewed by Felix Perry
|Though gruesome, very real and very important valuable lesson that kids need to be listened to, supervised and definately watch what they are watching and playing with. Thanks Cherry Pie for this insight.
