I have not seen the video of the father who attacked the kid who blind-sided his son in a football game, but I think this column by CW Nevius does a good job of showing why there are wars.   We do respond at a visceral level to defend our children.  I well know  the mother bear energy that brews to defend my sons.  I love how Steve Young's mother ran onto a football field one time when she saw her son unfairly attacked.    This is a column worth reading, and seeing what stews within, so we can hopefully respond with a "civilized" restraint when the need arises.
