Has Life Become so Cheap

Everyday we hear crimes against another life in the news. What astonishes me is the fact that people are getting killed for the dumbest and stupidest of reasons! Has life become so cheap that we can justify why we should take it?

I think that time and violent media have reduced the value that we put on another human's life. I agree that people are killed over very stupid reasons, but I think this can also be contributed to the lack of communication. I think that many people have problems communicating their feelings in an appropriate manner and they take horrible measures to solve their problems instead of having a conversation. If most people talked about their problems before acting on impulses, I think that we would see a lower murder rate.
