Those who came before us, they laid aside their many indifference for the sake of freedom, to give the future generation a better tomorrow. Today, we are that generation, but we grab a hold of all our petite indifference to destroy the future, by ravishing the present. That which was then is greater than that which is now. Willful ignorance will not dethrone the blood and sweat of freedom. I love America, you have to stay away awhile to realize how great this country is. Marvin Gaye
Greek philosopher Plato once wrote in his work, 380 BC. Democracy is in jeopardy when the younger generation disrespects their fathers.
He was right, 110 years ago on this day, 1910 in the State of Washington, the first Father's day was observed, through the inspiration of a Church service on Mother's day , a lady was inspired to honor her father, a war veteran. However, today most of our young people despise the military and most things law and order. Consequently, from the State where Father's day was first celebrated, today it is where in the United States the most chaos reigns, for the lack of leadership and respect in the modern homes.
May our mistake as a nation serve as a new beginning for a change. Honor your father and your mother, so that your days may be long on the land which the Lord your God is giving to you. Exodus 20:12
