The United States must get back to honoring the principles and ethics that made this country great. We had guns in the kitchen when I grew up, they were stacked in the corner and the ammunition was in the drawer. Did the kids touch them, of course not?
We were lectured daily on leaving them alone and I don’t want to think about the punishment that would descend upon us kids if we even looked at them without parental supervision.
I grew up in the days of cowboy shows and always had a six gun attached to my hip, did I point at anyone, of course not, especially when my mom was watching.
I was watching a Time/Life show last night. They were selling DVDs featuring Bob Hope’s 40 years of entertaining the troops. It showed many clips of thousands of soldiers sitting on hillsides in Vietnam singing Christmas Carols. I seriously doubt that the military sings Christmas carols today.
We were issued a small bible to carry in the pocket over our heart, I hear that practice has also been abandoned. As I try to explain in my latest book,”The Wisdom of Our Ancestors,” We no longer practice the values that made this country great, and this country will never be great again until we return to that mindset.
It’s time to revisit the past and remember what made us great.
