What happened to the country mainly Political Correctness and the teaching that Nobody is a Failure in anything they do. You can tell a child not to touch he stove because it is hot, some listen and do not touch; some touch and learn the hard way. But both ways are learning. Society tends now not lo let the child learn by touching by telling hem it wasn't their fault the stove was hot and they got burned when they touched it.

When people reminisce about what America used to be like, some act scornfully toward us. They say living in a Donna Reed world was great for a few, but that there were many suffering souls. The way our country is today makes some of us long for those days which seemed so innocent compared to the harsh, cruel, coarse, and sometimes murderous days we exist in today.

Yet most would argue that there were still injustices when we were growing up fifty years ago. Black people who had been freed a century before were still not treated equally in most parts...
