call-of-dutyI am a gamer and still proud of it.  Connecticut’s Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy has stirred up lots of emotions dealing with being a gamer.  The old debate about violence in games, specifically video games, is rearing its ugly head once more.  An article in Library Journal states so well how I feel.     http://reviews.libraryjournal.com/2013/03/media/gaming/games-and-violence-games-gamers-gaming-march-15-2013/  It points out that many people play games and are not violent.  As a Librarian it’s our responsibility to connect our patrons to the media and information they need to maximize the quality of their life, and entertainment is part of that.  Entertainment is a personal choice.
