March 12, 2018 - A group of us "older folks" got into a discussion yesterday about how our country had changed during our lifetimes. We agreed that that the changes have been dramatic. When we were teenagers no one locked their homes or took the keys from their cars. Pot was what we cooked and washed the clothes in and we'd never heard of cocaine or amphetamines. Being called a "God-fearing" person was a compliment in those days… as was attending Church and praying at school and at ball games.
We were poor back then but not "stressed out". We didn't call a marriage license "just a piece of paper"… and believed in getting married before starting a family. We taught our children that work was good for them and so was honoring their elders. Mothers didn't kill their babies and there was no "pro-choice" movement and no ACLU.
America is sick today… and one thing worse than being sick is being sick and not admitting it. Millions of Americans don't really think anything has happened to us…and couldn't care less. These naive "Drunk-on-Entertainment" folks figure we've only lost jobs and money…. but we've lost a lot more than that.
We've lost our way.
