“I REMEMBER AMERICA WHEN”

I REMEMBER AMERICA WHEN doors were never kept locked and guns were never kept cocked.

I REMEMBER AMERICA WHEN everyone waved and said hi, when people thought it was wrong to steal and lie

I REMEMBER AMERICA WHEN kids Pledge Allegiance to this big cloth their grandparents loved so dear..

I REMEMBER AMERICA WHEN kids went to school without fear, parents not worrying if a predator was near.

I REMEMBER AMERICA WHEN on every porch flew that same big cloth that was red,    and blue.

 I REMEMBER AMERICA WHEN at games everyone would stand and wave that Stars and

Stripes cloth on a little stick and dad would call me his sidekick

I REMEMBER AMERICA WHEN kids got pop only on Friday night and loved to watch TV in black and white.

I REMEMBER AMERICA WHEN mom would holler time to eat and we'd all sit at a big round table and kick feet.

I REMEMBER AMERICA WHEN kids loved to go outside to play and colored pictures with grandma on a rainy day.

I REMEMBER AMERICA WHEN teens showed respect and never answered their parents with "what the heck"

I REMEMBER AMERICA WHEN kids went to Sunday school then to grandma's house for apple pie.

I REMEMBER AMERICA WHEN grandpa drove his 57 Chevy wearing his red,      and blue tie.

I REMEMBER AMERICA WHEN stamped on everything was the words that would so proudly say: 

I REMEMBER AMERICA WHEN it was that way or was it all just a dream I had one day?

DREAM!
