What Happened to Our Country?

So many opinions about what can be done to stop monsters and no solutions. The fact is that monsters have existed since the beginning of time and they always will. As years go by, monsters evolve into the kind of scumbag that murdered those kids. Hitler is a good example of a 20th. century monster who disarmed his citizens. The point is that there is no solution. A monster determined to take lives, and sacrifice his own, cannot be stopped. Not even by armed guards (unless it's a high profile politician).

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...
