To the editor:
What has happened to America? How was this nation founded? Why don’t we celebrate the date of the signing of the Constitution?
Is it mentioned in our schools? Do we still salute the flag? How many students have read the Constitution?
Why is Martin Luther King so highly honored with big crowds? Our president took part in that day, what did he do on Constitution day?
What happened to those signers of this great document? What price did they pay?
Remember the days when every classroom had a flag and saluted it? Remember the days when there were pictures of George Washington and Lincoln in the school rooms?
We have freedom to worship. How many other countries have that? Why are our churches reluctant to talk about issues and what is best for America? God and country is what we have, but we ignore it. If this continues, we will no longer have our freedoms.
