America Is Important

Judge Rembert
Guest Columnist


2021 is where she finds herself...
Hours still have 60 minutes...
Days still have 24 hours...
Weeks still have 7 days...
Months still have 4 weeks...
Years still have 12 months...

BUT:
But everything else seems to...
To have changed...
Her world is so different now...

She still has the same address...
She looks in a mirror...
She has not changed...
She used to live in America...
She still lives in America...

BUT:
Where did her America go...

She remembers the “Old America”...
The one she was raised to live in...
The one where people worked hard...
People were proud to be respected...
People were proud to be Americans...
The American flag was honored...
Every school room had an American flag...
The Pledge of Allegiance was repeated...
Repeated and respected...

American adults passed on love...
Love of country...
Love of pride in country...
Children watched and learned...
Learned respect for laws and government...

BUT:
Government was never perfect...

But in 2021 what does she see...
In one day the same person will say...
Say “Do it this way”...
“No. Do it another way”...
“No. Don't do it at all”...
“No. Do it twice”...
Adults and children are mislead...

America has always been a mixture...
Many people for many places...
Many different backgrounds...
But it seemed that more people...
People in the “Old America”...
Wanted to see America succeed...
Wanted to see Americans succeed...

Well folks she is an old lady...
She still wants America to succeed...
She still loves the American flag...
It flies on a pole in her front yard...
She still loves the Pledge of Allegiance...

No longer does she take America for granite...
Those day are gone...
People have to wake up and be brave...
Pay attention...
Be an example...
Let people know that you love America...

EVERY AMERICAN IS IMPORTANT...
AMERICA IS IMPORTANT...
