Bruce brings up some very good points, and yes I can remember not very long ago when I was in grad school we never locked our apartment doors when we went to class or locked our cars at nite. Now we have to almost double lock everything. Yes, what happened to our society?? Many of us wish we had the correct answers. And it probably ain't gonna be any better any time soon.

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...
