Now, the opposite to the above is true. Some claim what has happened is “progressive,” a “change you can believe in.”
The culture, simply put, has gotten worse. It’s the most angry and uncivil toward one another in recent memory.
This isn’t “change” I can believe in, nor anyone else with any reason.
Since kicking God and prayer out of schools in the early 1960s, and now with persecution of Christians gearing up more and more, the culture believes it can live without God.
Any review of the history of places with atheist-based governments clearly shows what miserable despotic nightmares such regimes turn into.
Is this also “change we can believe in”?
To the Editor:
I am an Active Duty Service member that lives here in Plainfield. On Nov. 6, I was in Marsh supermarket with my wife and two kids. I had come home from work and was still in uniform when we headed to the store. I normally try to change after work so as not to draw attention to serving. I do this not because I am ashamed but because I do not feel that I deserve any discounts or charitable gifts because I choose to volunteer to serve.
Of course there have been times when I am in uniform and I have my coffee at the gas station paid for anonymously. The same thing at a restaurant when I have stopped to grab a quick bite to eat … but today was a first.
My wife and I did not intend to buy a lot at the store but when we headed to the register we had about a half a cart full. Behind us in line was a nice lady who had stopped earlier in the store and said “hi” when my little girl, 18 months, cheekily waved at her.
