Politicians don't talk anymore like Kennedy did back in 1960

To The Daily Sun,

No time in the school day for the pledge of allegiance. My God, what has happened to our values? I was in 4th grade 50 years ago that November, we started our day with the pledge, hours later JFK was gone.

I was 14-years-old when I attended my first military funeral; over the years they don't change. I still get a shiver up my spine when the honor guards fold and then presents the flag to the family members, thanking them for their loved ones service.

Who's teaching these kids? NO God, no pledge, NO Xmas, NO Halloween, NO idea of the word patriotism. At 60 I've seen a lot of culture changes over the years, but this basic breakdown of values being taught to the next generation is brainwashing the future of this country. JFK said, don't ask what your county can do for you, ask what you can do for your country. People and politicians don't talk like that anymore.
