Some old fashioned Patriotism.
I wonder whatever happened to this kind of thinking in America. I got a lump in my throat when I read this.. I "grew up" thinking: patriotism, it is the AMERICAN way! I am glad to see that somebody saved these. The statement at the end says it all!
These were our parents. What in God's name have we let happen to our Country? We were taught these values and then we let them die ..... I guess we are the last generation to see, or even remember anything like these? Whatever happened? Political correctness (or "re-education") happened, lack of God's name happened, lack of personal responsibility happened, lack of personal integrity and honesty happened, lack of respect and loyalty to our country happened, lack of being an American happened.

Oh, I DO like them! Thanks so much, Brent!

Waste of Time
A little girl had just finished her first week of school.

said to her mother.

How does it feel
To treat me like you do
When you've laid your hands upon me
And told me who you are
I thought I was mistaken
I thought I heard your words
Tell me how do I feel
Tell me now how do I feel
Those who came before me
Lived through their vocations
From the past until completion
They will turn away no more
And I still find it so hard
To say what I need to say
But I'm quite sure that you'll tell me
Just how I should feel today
I see a ship in the harbor
I can and shall obey
But if it wasn't for your misfortunes
I'd be a heavenly person today
And I thought I was mistaken
And I thought I heard you speak
Tell me how do I feel
Tell me now how should I feel
Now I stand here waiting
I thought I told you to leave me
While I walked down to the beach
Tell me how does it feel
When your heart grows cold
(grows cold, grows cold, grows cold)
