America has been a free society since 1776 when the Constitution was signed by our Founding Fathers. Our basic freedoms include Freedom of Religion, Freedom of Speech, Freedom of the Press, and the Right to Peacefully assemble. However, today our freedoms are threatened by politicians seeking power and control over our American way of life!
A recent poll stated that only 36% of young adults, 18 to 24, are proud to be Americans. What happened?
When society fails to make children a national priority and “we the people” don’t work together in our homes, neighborhoods, schools, and communities to improve children’s lives, we should expect a decline in our democratic way of life. Today, taxpayers spend a staggering 80 billion a year on child abuse and neglect without discussing prevention. Over the decades, youth grew up with abuse of drugs and sex, with increasing problems with gangs, violence, and homelessness. No wonder many young adults are no longer proud to be an American.
