The more I look around, America seems to be evolving from the land of the free to the land of the double standard. This country was founded on equal treatment under the law - period. Yet,more and more are choosing to become afflicted with "gray-area-itis." Why?
Another item that came to light was not only what was included in this "Looking Forward" section; it was what was not included.
We are approaching the ninth anniversary of 9-11. With so many lives lost on that terrible day, one would think that a simple acknowledgement would have transpired here. An education on what took place...a moment of silence scheduled...or even a simple reference in an elementary newsletter. Unfortunately, that would not be the case.
What's wrong with this picture? Is it so hard for a rule to be followed for all involved? America was founded on uniting those of a different background under a common ideology and a common goal=> That being freedom and equal treatment.
The system was not set up for the "special people" to abide by an enlightened rule of order while the rest of us adjust to a common man's law.
"We will never forget..."? If anything, we have forgotten all too soon.
