Trying to measure up

From the time a person is born to the time he dies, he is attempting to measure up or satisfy someone else's whims. For example, as a child he attempts to please his parents or his friends.

Our memory fades to 1966 when a drifter named Richard Speck broke into a Chicago apartment and killed eight student nurses. It shocked the world. Nowadays, unfortunately, such incidents make headlines one day and are forgotten the next because they occur so often. It's a sad sign of the times, we suppose.
