America……where has she come from? Why has America changed so much since previous generations?
I want to take you to a time; a place very different from what life is like now. Although it’s hard to believe, America was once a joyous and semi carefree place to live. Not that there weren't problems or hard times, but people were different. They lived by their morals and hard work, and not on a monthly check from the government.
It is often thought, that the 1950s were the days to be alive.
You could walk down any street and see flags near and far. Patriotism wasn't a spirit that came out once a year during July, but a daily feeling of pride for your country.
Crime rates were lower and communities were safer.
New heights were scaled and new things brought to light. Color TV had just become a normality, Mount Everest was climbed, credit cards were gaining steam, private and public schools had just become desegregated, the space race was starting, a new car was $1500, and gas was thirty-two cents a gallon.
Life was broadening into so many new areas. What is different from today? Why is there terror and fear?
America has not only lost her spirit, but she has forgotten her God.
What standard is there for life if we remove God from the equation? Every man does that which is right in his own eyes.
