The bloody body of a dead student removed from the street right after the Tiananmen Square crackdown on June 4, 1989.

As much as society continues to focus the killing rampages on factors such as television and music, what children are exposed to in reality contributes to the violence.

August Wilsons Fences It is easy to make the case that August Wilson\'s play Fences is a tragedy and that Troy Maxson is its tragic protagonist. Few comedies end with a funeral, and there is no denying that Troy\'s character and life are the stuff of tragedy. But Wilson\'s vision is much larger than Troy\'s heroic side, his deeds and omissions. Troy, for all his strengths, is flawed humanity in need of grace and forgiveness. Such grace and forgiveness are the spirit of true comedy, and a case ca
