There are those among us who make the claim we are
better off now then we were in our past. But they
make no sense. They claim racism was worse back in
the day and in the next breath call us racist now
if we don’t agree.
These same people claim our economy is better now
than 10 years ago. But 10 years ago gas was around
$1.60 a gallon, groceries were a lot cheaper and
we paid less in taxes.
We know we are worse off now than we were 10, 20,
30, or even more years and we’ll tell you why. If
you go to baseball, football, basketball, or a
soccer match that plays the National Anthem just
You’ll see couples chatting, cell phones out,
people not facing the flag and even people not
standing up. This is something that never used to
used to happen.
Freedom isn’t free and with rights come
responsibilities. Because of these every American
regardless of race, creed, religion, political
party, or financial standing should at least face
our flag during the National Anthem.
If you don’t respect the flag or our Anthem you
don’t deserve to be here. Then we have people
at military funerals who think it fine to talk
during the flag folding ceremony. It is not.
The ceremony is real active duty military showing
respect for a fallen veteran. And the flag folding
is not pomp and circumstance. Some of us feel very
strongly about the ceremony. We will try to
educate you so if you attend another military
funeral at least you know the significance.
We need to get common sense, courtesy, and respect
back in our society before it is too late. We need
to go back to an us nation instead of a me nation.
Comments are always welcome.
