    Here we go again. A 7-year-old Colorado boy was suspended for throwing an imaginary hand grenade on his elementary school playground. Yes, imaginary

      It is insane.

      The WHOLE idea of "games" evolved over the eons as a safe way to release violent and competitve tendencies without actually killing or maiming your opponent.  From kids playing tag, cops & robbers, and dueling with wooden swords, to Roman troops carrying on "Bloodless Battles" in preparation for "Bloody Drills" (war), games and play have been a safe outlet for people.

      Football is FULL of war analogies, baseball less so.

        There's nothing to educate him about...he was doing what little boys have done since the beginning of time...it's pure, natural human behavior.

      What if he were throwing a grenade that had been thrown at him? Just stand there and let it go off?

      I just don't get it. 

      Where and when my parents lived, small towns in the 50's and 60's, it was perfectly acceptable to bring a rifle or shotgun to school (left in the car) to go hunting after classes were out.  When I went to school in the 80's there wasn't a passing thought given to the idea that someone might kill anyone at school, much less try to kill the entire student body.  There were policies of expulsion for drugs and weapons, but those things didn't occur often.

      Now, we have an environment where small  children apparrently aren't allowed to even think about any violent act, yet we currently have some of the most deranged violent youth in history.  Maybe there's a lesson there that we're barking up the wrong trees with regard to how we're attempting to remedy the problems.

        One of my Yoga teachers was noticing the posture of a small child who was sitting on the floor with a perfectly straight spine and she commented on it.

        She noted that children sit that way naturally and confidently until some well meaning adult will make a comment like "What's with you? Are you full of yourself?"

        Of course, what else would they be full of?

        The child then sinks down in their chair into a protective posture and it takes a lifelong practice for them to get that natural healthy spine back.

        I agree with you. But it's the result of a culture that is filled with fear while simultaneously fearmongering because it's profitable. Add to that the distaste for in-depth analysis of anything and this is what you get.
