What has happened to civility in this country? Never in my life have I seen such ugly words and deeds towards those who might think differently. In bygone years, if your political party lost, you felt badly for a brief spell, and let off some of your negative feelings, and then went on your way until the next election; at which time you had hope that your Party and way of thinking would prevail.
This is my opinion, but I fear that we are on the verge of civil war in The United States. What has worked so well since 1776, for some, is now unworkable and our Constitution needs to be greatly revised or discarded. For all too many The Holy Bible and Ten Commandments are outdated, and most people hardly know them, much less live by their precepts. What is right is what we perceive to be right. There is no fixed standard. Civil unrest, physical violence, and extremely ugly voices are trying to drown out what we consider to be the American Way of Life.
A very important election is coming up soon, and all of us need to make certain that our voices count. Age is creeping up on many of us, and we might be tempted to just wash our hands of this whole mess. Those who want to destroy the nation hope that we have been discouraged and then they can take over by default. I do not ever feel like throwing in the towel. I shall not go down without a fight. Those of us with a little age upon us have served our nation and our God in good faith. We have tried to make our nation and world safe for both ourselves and those who shall come after us. If we truly believe that our Republic is the best form of government, then we cannot let those who would have us to be Socialist or Communist prevail. Keep in mind that the younger members of our Society and Family have been highly exposed to government that is supposed to care for their every need and want. As for me, I like the words of Former President, John F. Kennedy, “Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country.”
