Judge Rembert
Guest Columnist


Life is really different these days...
Words like respect seem to have lost meaning...
Love of country has changed in 2019...
Maybe it is just her that has changed...

As a child she remembers all the pride...
Pride in the flag...
Pride in Red White and Blue...
She remembers everyone being taught...
Taught to stand and place the right hand...
Hand over their heart...
You would have been embarrassed by all...
All who saw you not do that...

She remembers how happy she was...
Happy to hear the Pledge of Allegiance...
She remembers the pride that her Father was...
Was a former Navy boy...
She remembers the pride that her Uncle had...
Had in his service and commission...
Commission in the Navy...

WWII took her Father's only Son...
His Father cried but then he said...
“My Son died to save this country”...
He had pain and pride in his voice...

It hurts her to see the flag mistreated...
She is glad her Father and Uncle are gone...
They do not have to watch this disrespect...
She is having trouble with it but...
But I would have killed them...

Why, Why, Why...
Why have we as citizens changed so much...
Why, Why, Why...
Why have we allowed this to happen...
Think about it...
We can change this back...
One person at a time...
One American Citizen at a time...
We have the power and we can...
Can stand up and be counted...

There may come a day when...
When it is too late...
To late to save America's future...
America is a dream that many people died...
Died to save...
Save from evil...
America is worth the time and energy
that it takes to respect our flag...
Respect the people who died to save us...

Please look for the pride in your country...
There is much for you to be proud of...
Take the time to look...
Better look while you can...
It may be gone one day...
And you really won’t be able to find it...

More About Judge Rembert: WWII made Judge an only child when her half-brother was killed in the war. She lived in a tiny town in South Carolina until she was eight and her Mother went to work. She was sent to a boarding school in Belmont, N.C. From that time on she has lived back and forth in the two Carolinas. They are both home. She was born dyslexic and did not know what the problem was or that it had a name until she was about 45. She was unable to spell so she never put words on paper until she was 65 and had a computer with spell check. She comes from a long line of story tellers and a Mother that taught her much by telling stories. Stories about people and how they faced life and how they dealt with problems. If you read what she writes you may hear her Mother and her Grandmother talking to her. She is thrilled to know that anyone reads her words and finds them interesting. Oh, she is 75 now and she now makes her home in Aiken, S.C. If you like Judge’s writings or would like to comment on them let her know by emailing judgerembert@bellsouth.net.
