Oww that Hurt

Foster (6-9, 11, 14) -- Jerz: EL150 (Intro to Literary Study)

" Violence is one of the most personal and even intimate acts between human beings, but it can also be cultural and societal in its implications."

I have to say I never thought of violence or violent acts in quite that way of being intimate. I'm not really one for violence whether its in a book or a movie, but I can see how an act of violence can say something significant about a culture or even a generation. As well as something about us as people from our reaction to it.
