Our children…. the future of America

October 13, 2017

….it takes quite a bit to amaze this old man but before I moved to Texas and only visited during the Christmas holiday’s whenever I saw or heard my, (then preschool age), grandchildren speaking or reading in German it knocked my socks off. My daughter-in-law, now a naturalized U.S. Citizen, wanted her children to be fluent in both English and German for their visits with her parents in Germany. This is iron-clad proof to me that whatever we nurturer in our children from birth they will absorb like a sponge and remain a part of them.

Then again it is just plane common sense that our children absorb what they hear and see as they grow up. Their actions towards others and their beliefs are molded by what the adults around them believe and how the adults around them act towards others. So is it any wonder that today’s adults are so lacking in morality, national pride, a willingness to stand on their own two feet and are not so thin skinned that they get upset if their beliefs are challenged?

When we frequently see some protest or other turn into a riot with total disregard for others freedom or property, or are witness to the wave of ridiculous national grief like we saw over last Novembers election one must ask how did these people get this mixed up. And when we also see these same people supporting the enactment of laws allowing men to use woman’s bathrooms or forcing states to issue ‘gender neutral’ drivers licenses and calling anyone bigoted who oppose them one must wonder where these beliefs were instilled. The icing on the cake of this ridiculousness is that these same people who claim they must be allowed to do these things because of freedom of speech will without a second thought riot causing destruction and mayhem when someone is scheduled to give a speech opposing them.

Yet is not the parents alone who are responsible for what we see in today’s society but any adult in authority over those children and even the children our children play and go to school with who are to blame. One glaring example would be the children’s teachers. Our children today spend more time interacting with them their their own parents, so is it any wonder that a teacher may have the same or even more influence on our children’s beliefs than their parents? So even if a parent’s every example reflected high morality and love on nation if the child’s teachers thought and shaded their teaching differently it would no doubt weaken what the child was exposed to at home.

One may ask how did today’s teachers develop their beliefs…. one possible answer is because their parents may have grown up in the 60’s era where they developed a hatred toward a government that was at the time pro-war and they lived in a society that was loosing its moral center with the mantra, ‘if it feels good do it’. It is obvious when looking back on the history of the social shift in this nation that this is where the foundation for today’s lack of morals, disrespect for those proud to be American and desire for their country to give them whatever they want for free was established.

We may have thought we were doing what was best for our children but what we have done was lay the groundwork for a nation of children, now grown into adulthood, who now have the power to change the direction of our country. Where once we were a generally conservative nation proud of it heritage based on freedom and morality we now have leaders steering this nations course toward liberal socialism where some people are no longer proud of what the United States has accomplished in its 241 year history and anyone who still adheres to living morally is considered stupid and behind the times.

….but like the current evolution towards liberal-socialism
it takes time to change the course of this nations population
and with today’s current mindset
one must wonder
if we can ever steer her back
to those original founding principles.

    And this wonderful but grim (but truthful) posting comes from a person who a few short months ago said in so many words he didn’t feel he had much to offer anymore & if memory serves me correctly, considered shutting down this website. DON’T YOU DARE, PETE!!!!

    Well worthy of an editorial column in any newspaper if they have the guts to print it.
