Are You Aware

Judge Rembert
Guest Columnist


America is changing...
If you are an adult...
If you have aging parents...
You are aware...
If you have children...
You are aware...
Aware that their world is different...
Different from the world you knew...
Knew as a child...

If you remember the American flag...
The flag that you saw in your classroom...
The flag you said the Pledge of Allegiance to...
You remember good school lunches...
Lunches you wanted to eat...
You remember the nice ladies who cooked...
Cooked the fresh food...

Once you grew up you learned...
Learned that some politicians were dishonest...
But most were people who loved America...
Some how Washington DC remained...
Americans recovered from storms...
Americans won wars...
Americans took care of their vets...

There were always poor people...
But mentally ill people had care...
In 2021 there are cities with tent cities in them...
There are cities where you see trash...
Trash in parks, sidewalks and streets...
Cities that have major rich neighborhoods...
Same cities have tent cities in them...
American children living in tents...
What has happened to America...
What has happened to the “American Dream”...

What were we all doing...
What were we thinking...
When are we going to except our failures...
Americans have no one to blame...
No one but ourselves...
Maybe we were busy...
Maybe we were fishing...
Maybe we were playing golf...
Maybe we just wanted someone else to be aware...

Well folks what are Americans doing to change...
What are Americans aware of now...
What about all the children in tents...
Tents without water and lights...
Tents without locks on the doors...
What is their world going to offer...

What were we all doing...
Who was asleep at the wheel...
What is the answer...

Are you aware in 2021...
It is never too late to try...
Never too late to be aware...
Never too late to love America...
Never too late to fly your American flag...
