Next week will mark the anniverary of the fall of the Alamo.It is sad to see how far our society has digressed since then.At that time and place you had patriots willing to die for their homes and beliefs.They were not soldiers or warriors per say they were lawyers,shopkeepers and farmers.They represented all nationalities,races ,and creeds.They knew the true meaning of courage and committment and honor was more than just a word it was a way of life.
It was a time when there was no need for an extreme makeover for when there was troubles your neighbors bailed you out not a government project.
Now these values are laughable.We treasure those who are polically correct over those who are honest.Larceny over right and wrong.We have forgotten the lessons our Country learned so hard and what we were founded on.Our leaders take pride in their party when they should be more concerned with being a statesman.
We've taken a wrong turn somewhere and we won't find our way back with a map or a book.The compass is within ourselves.We wll have to regain our past to recatre our future.
So with great pride I will Remember the Alamo.Maybe one day we can again make them proud of us.
