TRIED TO MAKE US LOSE SIGHT

TRIED TO MAKE US LOSE SIGHT

History Books have been changed...

Education had been changed...

College costs a lot for many...

That's what you need for a good paying job...

Some can afford Private School...

They are known as the privileged...

The good lessons aren't taught...

Time out is the new discipline...

Technology is raising the children...

The new education is there to deceive...

I can say I am Blessed because, I was born in the 60's...

I learned from some of the Best!

People came and tried to make us lose sight...

Hugs...

Excellent poetry 
when I was a kid
We said the pledge of allegiance
And had a moment of prayer
We folded our hands and
Bowed our heads 
I know what you are talking
About I went to a public
School but they were
Much strickter back in the day
we actually learned something
Angel great write

Hi sis Sparrowsong....I was born in 1969 and I understand how much has changed now for my kids.....and technology scares me how it can be used for good or bad...but definitely can brainwash and distort life.  Very controversial write... Happy Independence day!  xo  Love n Hugs ;)

Hello Tony and Cherie...

I don't understand why it's considered a can of worms or controversial...

What was this Country formed on?

There was also a lot less crime, a lot less people and people took care of their own...

Is that controversial too?

Actually, we should celebrating on July 2...

That's when the Declaration of Independence was actually signed...

Today was the day it was voted on...

Fun Facts my friends...

Thank you for your comments and support!

Love n Hugs

Hello Angel...

Yes, we certainly did...

​​​​​​Only drills we had were fire drills...

They shouldn't have fixed what wasn't broken...

Thank you for your kind comment and support!

Hello Greg...

I put them under Contests just for fun...

If I ever won I said it before and I'll say it again...

I will forfeit and someone can have the money...

I don't have a PayPal account and I'm not getting one...

I haven't even had a chance to open a Bank Account yet at my new place...

I closed out my other one when I moved...

I'll get by a Bank sometime...

Thank you for your encouraging words my friend!

Thank you for your support!

Hugs...
