Bang! Bang! Little children crying and running; terrified that they will die. The shooter walks into the room heavily armed, with a crazed look in his eye. There is a girls near a cupboard and small group of 1st graders behind her. He starts to move toward the small room to finish what he started. Then the young woman steps in the front of the shaky gunman to shield the pupils from injury. A fatal shot is fired and the youthful teacher begins dead. That woman was Victoria Soto, a hero at the Sandy Hook Shooting, who risked her life to save her pupils out of that delusional man, Adam Lanza. The horrific incident that happened on December 14, 2012 took the innocent lives of 26 pupils and teachers. Lanza did have a mental illness, but that is not about to blame. The shooter was known to play and watch violent film and games (likeAliprandini and Finley). This demonstrates that media violence may be linked to aggressive behaviour and violent media can influence the minds of several young children and adolescents. Studies in recent years have helped prove that sometimes the media can be bad for kids. The outcome of playing first-person shooter games might wind up in innocent lives dying like in Newtown. Young children are exposed to violence daily. In TV shows, books, movies, animations, movies, and the internet, violence is a part of everyone's lives, but particularly those of young kids. By way of example, lately Paramount Pictures published Hansel and Gretel: Paper Hunters, a weapon slinging twist on a classic fairy tale (McKay). In the movie they've people blow their own heads off with a shotgun. In retrospect this film is not meant for kids 13 and below, although children would love to find a "fairy tale" like this. Young 10 year oldsdo today even.
