Yup! We need to look at many of the past decisions that have undermined values!

Response to MY OPINION TOO!!!


We don't pray or say the Pledge in schools because it offends a few. We allow the Standard of the United States to be burned as free speech. We say our laws separate us from religion while those same laws evolved from church law long ago. We cater to the ranting of a few to feel good while the silent majority sit back and allow our values to corrode. We need to take a harder look at the things that the Marine Corps tries to instill in Marines. Things like Duty, Honor, Courage, Values and Commitment.

How offensive it must be for past American warriors to look down and see that the Supreme Court says itÂ’s OK to burn our Flag as a statement of free speech. These same warriors carried that Standard into battle. They kept it flying at all cost. If a soldier that carried it was taken down, the next soldier picked it up to hold it high. And, the next soldier, and the next. The raising of the Flag at Iwo Jima became an inspiration for the Marines and Sailors there and went on to inspire a nation.
