Today's children not being raised with traditional values

The change in history in the last 75 years as I recall has been dramatic. This has affected my grandchildren as it has millions of today’s children. In my time, we came home to do chores. Today they come home, turn on the TV and play games. Games that years ago were simple, to the games of today which are very violent and destructive so after a while, young people become immune to the violence built into the games.

Laws have been made by people who think they have all the answers about controlling the world and it has crippled family life. Older citizens enjoy and like the letters I write; people under 40 mostly don’t read newspapers nor watch more than one or two TV stations, so many of the people do not get an all around view of what is going on in the world. An under educated America is what our enemies want, and they have gone a long way to getting it. Each year, our education quality deteriorates and that has became acceptable. I’ll be out of here one of these days, and am very sorry about the state of the good old U.S.A.
