I’m a sixty three year old grandma, a “boomer”. My father was a veteran of WWII, a navy man, who taught me to love and respect the USA. He got choked up when he talked about how great this country is, and he got tears in his eyes every single time he saw the Stars and Stripes waving in the breeze or heard the National Anthem. I have lived to see the country that my father sacrificed to defend and that I love, change into one that I can barely recognize. My thirty-something daughter can’t relate to a lot of my sorrow, because she doesn’t really know what this country once was. The qualities that my father had as a member of “the greatest generation” need to be brought back to our youth. I am one of those “right wing conservative nut jobs” that a lot of Liberal Progressives like to poke fun at. I want to hear “My Country ‘Tis Of Thee” and “The Battle Hymn of the Republic” being played all over this country, at all kinds of functions again. I want to hear the battlecry of “God and Country” be embraced by our armed forces once again. Our President has said that we are no longer a Christian nation. I had a sick feeling when I heard those words because; if that is really true, we are no longer the greatest nation on earth and can never hope to be again.
