I couldnt agree with you more. The media only increase the fear with people like Adam Lanza even though it is only rare occasions. People are afraid of what is different. This is the major problem with mainstream schools. We teach our kids to conform rather than to be themselves, different, unique and to express themselves creatively. My own opinion is that some of the most gifted, talented and creative people alive have likely been labelled as mentally ill. Rather than nurture their gifts, we have done them a major disservice. It is time for change!
